I know a lot of candidates love to obsess over grade non-disclosure, and very much enjoy how a number of the people looking for non-disclosure have ridiculously high GMAT scores. Something else that you may want to bear into consideration of how important, and how it reflects on a shool, is the honor code.
Now, honor codes can only stretch so far. And unless the MBA Oath garbage coming out of HBS catches on, that element is going to stuggle (on which, it is interesting the Oath came after the credit crisis, and not as some effort to get HBS to rescind the MBA of Jeff Skilling).
Anyway - my reason for posting is mainly to link to this story
, which is a very interesting case. I don't see the school looking to seek press off this (it was a pretty traumatic experience I imagine), but it is certainly better than being on the receiving end of this
, though I didn't remember the school being as harsh as to kick out 1/3 of the students.
The interesting thing about Honor Codes is that they are typically enforced by a committee of the student body, and not by administration (though they must support the action recommended by the committee). I am interested as to the opinion on the board as to how harsh such committees should be. We all know that the academic capacity of an MBA is not exactly gruelling, yet the honor quality of students is of the upmost importance. Should they become more harsh, have clawback provisions, or simply look to include more classes on corporate behavior practices?
