A corporate scandal involves alleged or actual unethical behavior by people acting within or on behalf of a corporation. Since the turn of the century, the U.S. has seen some large corporate collapses and scandals due to shoddy and deceptive accounting practices. Many companies, shareholders, and employees suffered as stock prices fell and reputations were tarnished when businesses conducted questionable practices.

This course is divided into four parts:
