Our mission is to unite Crummer graduates who aim to lead in the interests of the greater good and who have committed to living out the principles articulated in their class’ oath. The oath is a voluntary pledge for graduating MBAs and current MBAs to “create value responsibly and ethically.” Each year the Committee solicits revisions to the previous year’s oath to ensure that the document retains its relevance and then hosts an annual ceremony giving graduates the chance to publically declare their commitment to the oath’s ideals. Our long-term goal is to transform the field of management into a true profession, one in which MBAs are respected for their integrity, professionalism, and leadership. The MBA oath is a step towards realizing this vision.
