Our university reached another milestone in achieving the strategic goal of becoming a responsible and sustainable university when the renewed BBS Code of Ethics came into effect in September 2018. Our Code of Ethics summarises the principles of behaviour accepted by our students, faculty, teachers, researchers, and staff in our community, with the goal of providing guidance and supporting collaboration in our daily lives. We innovated in the approach and process of the drafting of the Code, as it has been developed with the involvement of a wide cross-section of our BBS Citizens.
Below we present you with:
- why we created our Code of Ethics
- what the Code of Ethics actually is
- what the Ethics Committee does
- where you can find out more about us
- what has happened since the adoption of the Code of Ethics
BBS’ vision is to become the leading applied sciences business university in the Central European region in the coming years. The key to achieving our strategic goals and our future success is a strong organizational culture characterised by a cohesive community and relationships based on trust and co-operation, the foundation of which is ethical behaviour. In the spirit of this, our Code of Ethics, which was originally established in 2004, was renewed in 2018 along with the rules of procedure of the Ethics Committee. The documents were adopted by the University Senate on June 29th, 2018, and came into effect on September 1st, 2018.
About the Code of Ethics
Our Code of Ethics summarises the principles of behaviour accepted by the students, faculty, researchers, and employees in our community, with the goal of providing guidance and supporting collaboration in our daily lives. We have innovated in the approach and process of drafting the Code, as it is has been elaborated with the involvement of a wide range of our BBS Citizens. The Code of Ethics applies equally to all Citizens of the University, though it may not regulate all possible situations. The Code is rather a guideline for potential ethical dilemmas that could arise in everyday life. In addition to the main principles, the Code highlights important information, provides easy-to-understand practical examples in the form of questions and answers, and provides additional information on a given topic.
