Business schools just do not make things easy for themselves. Two developments today:
First, the University of San Diego’s dean of business is facing charges in Ohio for meeting a drug trafficker in a hotel there. Why is he even in Ohio as school is starting at USD? Great question. Researching an ethics case study, no doubt.
Second, the Chronicle of Higher Education has the goods on an explosive new study on cheating at MBA schools. The upshot:
The survey found that 56 percent of graduate business students — most of whom are pursuing M.B.A.’s — had cheated, compared with 47 percent of graduate students in nonbusiness programs.
You have to love this stuff, especially a decade after ethics classes became compulsory at many biz schools.
