Mihaylo College of Business and Economics
Mandatory Ethics Requirement
One of the goals of the Mihaylo College of Business and Economics (MCBE) is to promote the development of ethically responsible students who will become future professionals in business, economics and other related fields. As responsible members of the MCBE community, students are expected to adhere to the highest standards of academic integrity and overall ethical conduct. To ensure that all MCBE students are aware of these standards, the faculty of the MCBE adopted a policy that mandates students fulfill the MCBE Ethics requirement by acknowledging the MCBE Student Code of Ethics, become familiar with the policies and practices related to academic dishonesty and plagiarism, and demonstrate competency in these areas by passing the MCBE Ethics Quiz.
