Its a shame.

Quote:
MBA students 'cheat the most'

Published: September 21 2006 Financial Times.

MBA students are the biggest cheats of all graduate students, with 56 per cent admitting to misdemeanours such as using crib notesin exams, plagiarism and downloading essays fromthe internet.

The statistic comes from a survey of graduate students to be published in the Academy of Management Learning and Education journal. The report is based on data from about 5,300 survey respondents at 54 colleges and universities in the US and Canada, including 623 students in 32 graduate bus-iness programmes.

The report will be unpleasant reading to US business schools, many of which are still smarting from the involvement of their alumni in recent corporate scandals: Jeffrey Skilling, former chief executive of Enron, received his MBA from Harvard Business School in 1979, for example.

The article did not mention that 54% of graduate students in engineering cheated too...

I think cheating is all over the place, its down right wrong.. Its not ethical.. But this is not related to only MBA.. Its all over the place.. from undergrad to graduate studies..

Interesting.. the least %of students that cheated were sociology graduates.
