Dans Jurcāns
Shows that ethics is not simply black-and-white
The question of ethics in business and in life in general may seem to be a bit obvious and that "the most self-righteous answer must be right", but this course does a good job of making one consider that each situation most likely has quite a few sides and perspectives. Definitely worth the time!

A very useful course filled with relevant case studies where companies may have intentionally / unknowingly got their ethical practices wrong and they resulted in revenue and reputational loss. The module draws upon a number of international scenarios that show why it is critical to factor in ethics in strategy, operations, financing and decision-making processes. I would encourage everyone to re-do this course every few years.

This is without a doubt the best Professional Ethics course I have taken to the date. Valuable information about ethics, with multiple examples from the real world and case studies. Recommended 100%.
Justin Affleck Manoti
The course was informative highlighting key areas that are pertinent to the global operate culture ethical scenarios that impact the organization. The case scenarios were very practical in the nature that you have to analyze different scenarios from companies that have been impacted negatively by lack of proper ethical behavior and poor corporate governance structures in their operations. Ethical and Professional Standards is a major part of the CFI Program curriculum at all three levels, so it is very important to learn this material well. CFI Institute places a high value on ethics, and even uses scores on this section to determine if someone passes or fails when their overall exam result is right at the edge of the Minimum Passing Score. Be ready to spend a good amount of time learning all the ethics materials.
Francine Fabiola PETATO TEWO

Highly recommend.
