Professional and Academic Standards
The MBA program acknowledges the significant impact of business on society. Consequently, those admitted to the program, retained, and awarded degrees, must possess, develop and demonstrate academic and professional integrity in all activities. They should be able to inspire public confidence and trust in business and in CSUB MBAs. In addition, all established university academic performance and student conduct standards for graduate students apply. Any student or applicant that is found by formal review to be lacking in academic integrity or in professional ethical standards of behavior, may be denied admission, placed on probation, suspended, or dismissed from the program. Such actions are, of course, subject to university review and appeal.
