Imagine that you work for a mortgage broker. You are considering the application for a mortgage for someone who falls below the income threshold. When you bring the application to your supervisor, she tells you “Just approve it. We need to make our quota this month. Who cares if they go into foreclosure!” Referring to the suggestions in your text about how to resist requests to act unethically, what would you do?
In response to your peers, consider your peers’ response. If they disagree with your response, consider the factual assumptions they have made which form the foundation of their opinion. Can you challenge those assumptions while furthering your discussion? If your responses are similar, consider posing a hypothetical question to test your peer’s conclusions.
Regardless of whether you are an attorney arguing in court or a business stakeholder pitching to shareholders or a potential client, adding support for your argument from appropriate resources strengthens your content. For this discussion board, be sure to include a citation to an appropriate source that supports the point you are making. (HINT: Your textbook is a great source!)
After having the opportunity to complete the course, what would you change and why? What topic particularly caught your interest and what do you want to know more about? Last, but not least, if you could share with the next class one piece of advice about this class, what would it be? Please note that this pertains to the class, the materials, flow/organization, etc.
Thank you and good luck on your educational journey!
