The students in the Master of Science in Finance degree program in The Eli Broad Graduate School of Management regard the principles of truth and honesty as fundamental to the accounting profession. The Honor Pledge is an agreement that a student makes with his or her fellow students to adhere to these principles. The Honor Pledge allows each student to fully develop his or her individual potential and protects the integrity of scholarship and grades at Michigan State University.
All members of the Department of Finance – students, faculty, and staff – are responsible for reporting Honor Pledge violations to the instructor of the course, or to the Department Chair for a non course-related violation. The rights of students accused of such violations are specified in Article 5 of the Graduate Rights and Responsibilities, Spartan Life: Student Handbook and Resource Guide. Article 5 also specifies the sanctions against students who are found guilty of Honor Pledge violations.
I pledge that I will not lie, cheat, steal, or plagiarize in my academic endeavors, and that I will conduct myself truthfully and honestly to uphold the integrity of Michigan State University.
