Ridiculous article on cheating at BW:
http://www.businessweek.com/bschools/co ... index+page
This article is pretty silly, the premise assumes that prospective students are really interested in cheating statistics when evaluating schools, and that some schools contacted by Business Week refused to answer their inquiry or provide any statistics on cheating.
Does anyone really care about cheating statistics at a school? I mean, it would be nice to know I'm going to a school with minimal cheating, but there are ten thousand things I would consider much more important considerations.
I know post-Enron and all that, there's a focus on ethics, but some of the mock outrage is ridiculous. I don't care if the students at my school drive over the speed limit, if they illegally download music, if they recycle, if they curse, or if a few of them get caught cheating and have academic sanctions imposed. I'm pretty sure (maybe I'm naive) that schools aren't "hiding" cheaters. Sure they're not holding press conferences every time they catch someone plaigiarizing, but I don't think there's any sinister ethics conspiracy going on.
