For the fourth year running, the Telfer MBA class participated in the development of an "MBA Oath of Ethics". This year 22 graduating MBA students participated in the annual oath ceremony at the Telfer School facility in Ottawa. Although recognizing that an oath in itself does not create an ethical individual, the student who participated in the event also recognized that the very act of taking an oath keeps the concept of ethics and integrity in doing business foremost in the minds of MBA graduates. This year's oath, developed collaboratively by the whole MBA 2013 cohort, focused specifically on accountability, social and environmentally conscious decision-making, and managerial responsibility to the broader stakeholder group of the company for whom individual graduates work. The history of the oath can be online.
