UNIBusiness Code of Ethics‌

UNI Business students vow to forever make ethical business decisions.

At UNI Business, we feel a solid understanding of ethical business practices is an important part of the business degree process. For this reason, we established the UNI Business Student Code of Business Ethics to ensure each student who enters the business world is armed with the confident to make ethical decisions.

 

Each year, business students are invited to an ethical workshop where they are exposed to various real-world ethical situations. They are taught how to consider cultural and gender differences and social and economical challenges so they have the knowledge to be balanced and fair in their actions.

SCAMMER OF A CENTURY AGO PIONEERED TACTICS USED TODAY

George Graham Rice? Never heard of him. Who is he? A century ago, though, he was a famous flamboyant scammer, a pied-piper of stock manipulation.

While incarcerated for the third or fourth time, he wrote a series of periodical articles that eventually coalesced into a book. As with other scammers, Rice was brazen, even boastful about his felonious escapades. He wryly entitled his book My Adventures with Your Money.
