Student Code of Conduct
Many private companies and public institutions have policies regarding the ethical (and legal) conduct of their employees. Along those lines, the University of Wisconsin MBA Consortium has developed a set of standards or expectations for faculty teaching in the program and for students taking courses in the program.
It would be nice to think that in today's world such policies were not needed; but sadly that is not the case. There are people who do things they shouldn't. Even though we know that nearly all of the students who take classes through the Consortium do so in an honest fashion, we have learned that there is a small percentage who don't act in an honest fashion. This small group of students takes advantage of the system, their classmates, and their instructors.
We want all of our faculty and students to represent themselves in an honest and ethical manner - and we want to let them know of our expectations.
The UW MBA Consortium Student Code of Conduct, found below, includes items that reference ethical behavior, items intended to increase awareness of processes within the Consortium and items that clarify terms.
You are expected to read the Code prior to accessing your first class offered through the Consortium. Your decision to access and participate in a Consortium class indicates your understanding and acceptance of all items in the code.
Repeated non-compliance with elements of this document may result in:
