3.2 Academic and Professional Ethics
The Faculty of Business Administration expects its students to adhere to the highest standards of academic and professional integrity. The Statement and Code of Academic and Professional Integrity provides guidance and prescriptive standards.
Academic integrity allows students to express their own thoughts, opinions, and values while pursuing academic excellence and striving to achieve their own personal best. It means that they will take responsibility for their learning values and pursue academic goals with honesty and enthusiasm. Academic integrity refers to submitting/presenting work for credit that represents only the student’s/students’ own work unless otherwise properly acknowledged, documented, and previously authorized by the instructor. This work includes but is not limited to exams, assignments, quizzes, individual or group projects or assignments, oral presentations, and work term reports.
Academic Offenses are outlined under University Regulations (Undergraduate), Academic Misconduct, Academic Offenses.
Professional integrity requires students to act with honesty, demonstrate accountability, engage in respectful collaboration, and support a culture of inclusiveness and respect. When students are participating in University activities, they shall do so with professional integrity and shall consistently apply the knowledge, skills, and values expressed in the Student Code of Conduct. The Faculty has created a Statement and Code of Academic and Professional Integrity, which is posted prominently on the Faculty of Business Administration website, in the Business Administration Building and is distributed annually to all students in the Faculty.
Students in the Faculty of Business Administration are subject to the Student Code of Conduct in all Faculty- or University-related activities including: work terms, exchanges, and case and other competitions. Violations of this standard of professional integrity will be resolved in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct.
