56% of MBA Students Admit to Cheating

Scary article in today's Chronicle of Higher Education:  Survey Finds Widespread Cheating in M.B.A. Programs, by Katherine Mangan:

More than half of the graduate business students surveyed recently admitted to cheating at least once during the last academic year, according to a report released on Monday. The report, "Academic Dishonesty in Graduate Business Programs: Prevalence, Causes, and Proposed Action," is based on survey responses from 5,331 students at 32 graduate schools in the United States and Canada, and is scheduled for publication this month in Academy of Management Learning & Education. 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.
