The Penn State Smeal College of Business MBA Program ranks 15th for ethics, according to rankings published in February by Bloomberg Businessweek. The program also ranks highly in e-business, coming in 23rd.

Smeal emphasizes integrity as a fundamental part of its academic culture. As MBA students enter the program, they pledge to adhere to the tenets of the Smeal Honor Code, an initiative begun by Penn State Smeal MBAs in 2006.

As part of its 2012 rankings, Businessweek surveyed class of 2012 MBAs on the full range of their experience. All 82 schools included in the ranking were scored in the areas of information technology, e-business, sustainability/green business, diversity, entrepreneurship, teamwork, leadership, ethics, and international business.

The Businessweek Complete 2012 Business Schools Ranking, released last year, ranked the Penn State Smeal MBA Program 38th overall—up eight spots from its 2010 ranking—and 14th among publicly supported programs.
