HBS has even offered an oath (optional) for its future cash hounds, whose alumni range from Jeff Skilling ('79) to Geo. W. Bush ('75). No I Q tests allowed, obviously.
The new MBA Oath has been so purelled that it translates "to make money" into the more wholesome and innocuous "to create value." Which presents a new problem for non-MBAS, perhaps. Since the study of ethics is the study of value among humans, that must mean now, according to HBS, that ethics has been elevated to the study of making money, or "to create value." Of course, that makes perfect sense.
THE MBA OATH
As a business leader I recognize my role in society.
• My purpose is to lead people and manage resources to create value that no single individual can create alone. . . .
