The UST MBA Credo

As part of the UST MBA program you join a distinctive community. As a Catholic university, St. Thomas places emphasis on the dignity and worth of every person, the love of truth and a commitment to using one’s education to make the world a better place for everyone to live and work. Membership in this community carries with it high expectations regarding the ways in which each person acts. All members of the UST MBA community are expected to honor the following commitments in all their actions:

• A commitment to the highest standards of honesty and personal integrity – both inside and outside the classroom.

• A commitment to treat others in a respectful manner, regardless of differences such as race, religion, nationality, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation.

• A commitment to open discourse and free exchange of ideas.

• A commitment to exercise mutual care and responsibility in all relationships.

• A commitment to an active concern for the safety, security and well-being of each individual and a respect for individual, communal and university property.

• A commitment to being an “active learner,” striving to the best of one’s ability to acquire knowledge and skills to become an effective, responsible leader in a continually evolving global business community.
