Community of Honor

Integrity matters within the Penn State Smeal MBA Program. It stands as a fundamental part of our culture and permeates what we do as a leading business school both in and out of our classrooms.

The college-wide academic integrity initiative at Smeal began in the college’s tight-knit MBA program as a partnership among students, faculty, and passionate alumni. The goal: integrate honesty, integrity, and accountability as foundational elements of the Smeal MBA experience.

MBA students pledge to adhere to the tenets of the Smeal Honor Code and to hold their classmates accountable.

Smeal Honor Code

We, the Smeal College of Business Community, aspire to the highest ethical standards and will hold each other accountable to them. We will not engage in any action that is improper or that creates the appearance of impropriety in our academic lives, and we intend to hold to this standard in our future careers.

In the News: In January 2014, the Smeal College of Business hired its first Director of Honor and Integrity to lead the development and implementation of the college's efforts in this area.
