Standards of Academic Integrity

Fordham graduate business students are part of a community dedicated to the disciplined and rigorous pursuit of knowledge and communication of truth. Academic integrity is the pursuit of scholarly activity in an honest, truthful, and responsible manner.

Students are expected to uphold the highest standards of academic integrity. Any work that a student claims to be his or her own must be his or her own; students must give appropriate credit where credit is due; and students must be fair and honest in all interactions with other members of the Fordham University community. Violations of academic integrity include, but are not limited to, plagiarism, cheating on exams, falsification, unapproved collaboration, and destruction of library materials.

The graduate business school has established an Academic Honor Code outlining the school’s standards of academic integrity, and every enrolled student is bound to abide by this code. An Academic Integrity Honor Court comprised of faculty and student members will review and adjudicate any alleged violations of the Honor Code. The Honor Court may impose sanctions if a violation has occurred, according to the seriousness of the offense.

Students should be familiar with Honor Code policies. Full copies of the Honor Code, review process, and disciplinary procedures are distributed to students at orientation and are available in the academic advising office, the assistant director for online learning's office, and on the school website.
