Course Description
Just like the monarchies that faded away at the turn of the last century, uni-block large enterprises are giving way to `shamrock` organizations based on loosely bound, self-sufficient yet strongly integrated network units, each acting like a small business. Your professional ambitions might lead you towards a corporate career in those new economy establishments or you might choose to satisfy the material and/or cognitive needs of your `free soul` by a private venture: in either case you must master one essential art: entrepreneurship. The above vision delineates the conceptual framework of this course, which we call `businessing`. Based on the motto, `every person is a business person`, this course is intended to help the attendees develop an entrepreneurial approach to a series of steps extending from idea generation to planning, fund raising and management

Legal developments relating to the protection of human rights are not limited to the activities of persons who act on behalf of governmental authorities. It is possible to encounter cases between private persons which may be defined as human rights violations and the law should also function in this area. So, the legal discipline, “human rights law”, should consider this fact. The course “Human Rights in the Business World” aims to discuss the international legal standards on protecting human rights in establishing, managing or ending business relations with special reference to existent cases at the national or transnational level. In this course, the effects of globalization on national and international business relations will also be discussed in the light of the existent or developing international human rights norms. In this framework, the in-house relations of a corporation will also be covered. The investment conditions and local or transnational effects of the activities of corporations toward people or the environment will be discussed in the same context.
