Code of Conduct for Members of Global MBA

As esteemed members of the Global MBA community, we stand united in our commitment to uphold the values of citizenship, community, integrity, responsibility, and accountability. These principles guide our interactions and actions, fostering an environment of respect, professionalism, and ethical excellence.

1. Dignity and Equality

We hold in high regard the dignity and equality of all individuals, irrespective of their background, culture, or identity. By respecting and valuing diversity, we enrich our collective experience.

2. Collaborative Engagement

In the dynamic realm of the business world, collaboration is crucial. Thus, we recognize the significance of active participation within our group and the Global MBA (GMBA hereafter) cohort. In the spirit of teamwork, we embrace a consultative approach to problem-solving, recognizing that our community thrives through the contributions of each member.

3. Zero Tolerance for Harassment

Our commitment to maintaining a safe and inclusive environment extends to our stance on harassment. We unequivocally denounce any form of harassment that is severe, pervasive, or objectively offensive. This prohibition encompasses all members of our community, including students, faculty, staff, and others. Harassment based on factors such as race, gender, religion, or disability will not be tolerated.

4. Accountability and Responsibility

We believe in the importance of accountability for our choices and actions. As responsible individuals, we acknowledge that decisions we make have consequences, both positive and negative. Embracing this accountability is fundamental to our personal and collective growth.

5. Courteous Communication

Effective and courteous communication is at the core of our interactions. This includes all kinds of communication including verbal, written (e.g., email, teaching evaluations, etc.), and attitude. We also understand that when we give feedback to each other, courteous communication works better than complaints and angry attacks.

By embracing this Code of Conduct, we pledge to create an environment that fosters ethical awareness, inclusivity, and mutual respect within the Global MBA community.

Each semester, the GMBA honors students who exemplify the fundamental principles outlined in the Code of Conduct through an award. Faculty, students, and staff are invited to propose nominees during the final exam period.

To Promote Academic Integrity and Professional Conduct


  • For instance, when addressing professors, we demonstrate respect by using appropriate titles such as "Prof." or "Professor." Additionally, we honor the customs of our diverse academic community, understanding that variations in addressing professors are culturally informed. For instance, "Prof. Jin-Su" or "Professor Jin-Su" may be used, reflecting our global perspective.
  • When communicating with the assistants in the GMBA office and other offices such as Office of International Affairs (OIA), we extend courtesy by addressing them by their proper names.
  • Even between students, we encourage students to talk to each other with respect, in both verbal and written communication, as classmates will often become future business partners or colleagues.
  • Feedback (both verbal and written) should be constructive with respect focusing on specific instances or aspects with a balanced view by highlighting both strengths and areas for improvements.
  • Avoid plagiarism on assignments and thesis (detailed below)


Presenting someone else's phrases, ideas, or data dishonestly as one's own, or failing to credit the original source appropriately. It necessitates that all direct quotations be delineated through quotation marks or indentation, and that the origin of the information or ideas be duly acknowledged.

Students should be aware of how to cite original sources properly. Remember that paraphrasing also requires you cite the original source. Refer to various citation software in the NYCU library for citation.
