Chariots of Liars: Do Executives Learn to Cheat at Business School?

I was in touch with Duke University for very different reasons this week, but stumbled upon the recent cheating scandal at its well respected Fuqua business school; 34 freshmen in the school were found to have cheated, and nine students are being expelled.  But they are only representative of a trend, if we are to believe a recent survey by the Center for Academic Integrity, which found that MBA students are more likely to cheat than their peers in other fields: 56% of surveyed MBA students admitted to cheating.  But lest any of us start feeling morally superior, Engineers didn't come out too well, either, with 54% admitting to cheating.  The figure for teachers was a still-surprising 48%. So much for destroying negative stereotypes.  More on this trend from Human Resources magazine.
