Movie Assignment Content
- For your Course Project, you will explore contemporary business ethics issues as seen in movies.
The purpose of your Course Project is to demonstrate your understanding, comprehension, and mastery of the following concepts:
• Identify and recognize ethical issues in business.

Pick a movie that you believe has an excellent ethical conflict or situation. You will then write a 3-4 page paper on these topics:
1. What is the name of the film, and describe in detail the ethical conflict?
2. What makes this situation unethical?
3. Is this something that frequently happens in today’s society?

For full credit on this assignment, please ensure that every question is answered and your answers are
supported. Please make sure that your answers are in your own words and not plagiarized. There are
no right or wrong answers to these questions just like the case studies; they are your opinions.

If you need some ideas for movies, I would use “A Few Good Men,” “The Big Short,” “Enron: The
Smartest Man in the Room”, “The Proposal.”
