You can't understand the world today if you don't understand corruption. Every day, we see high-level government officials resigning, governments changing, hundreds of thousands of people standing in squares, holding up signs, and often risking their lives to protest the corruption in the world. It's critically important to the health of our societies to understand what people are protesting against. We want to understand corruption. This course is designed to teach you about what corruption is, what causes corruption, the effects of corruption, and how to control corruption. We'll be talking about this from a global perspective using examples from all over the world. We'll also be talking about corruption from the perspective of countries, governments, businesses, citizens, and the people within these entities. At the end of this course, you'll have a better understanding of why the world is changing according to the path of corruption. If you're in a position to make changes within your respective entity, to make decisions about corruption, you'll be able to make better decisions.

TOP REVIEWS FROM CORRUPTION
The course is very relevant and well designed. However the course name should be changed to include the impact of corruption.
the skills acquired in this course is excellent. The issue of corruption has never been so clear to me like this. The course should be available to all students to train them for the future
It was an interesting course and I learnt how corruption affects our society and ways of controlling corruption in our societies.
Thank you, Prof. Nichols, for bringing this topic through the Coursera platform and as a part of the specialization - Business Strategies for a Better World.
