Ethical issues

We honour and develop ethical values

Being part Masaryk University, ECON MUNI is aware of its social responsibility and the fact that ethical values need to be preserved and developed.

These values and the basic ethical requirements for the conduct of those who study or work at the university are summarised in the MU Code of Ethics. Masaryk University and its entire university community are committed to honouring and respecting these values.
