MBA Oath in the Financial Times

Max Anderson provides an update on the MBA Oath in the Financial Times, describing the aspirational goal of extending the Oath’s presence even more broadly.

We have begun the process of creating MBA oath chapters on the world’s top business school campuses. We hope one day every graduating MBA will take this oath just as physicians take the Hippocratic oath. The history of the Hippocratic oath suggests this idea may not be so far-fetched. We think of the oath as a sacred medical creed, created in the era of Hippocrates. In fact, until the middle of the past century only a minority of physicians took the oath. Only after the second world war and the discovery of gruesome experiments conducted in the name of “medicine” did medical schools widely adopt it.
