Is It Time to Retrain B-Schools? in the 3/14 New York Times contained this revealing, disturbing fact:
A study of cheating among graduate students, published in 2006 in the journal Academy of Management Learning & Education, found that 56 percent of all M.B.A. students cheated regularly — more than in any other discipline. The authors attributed that to “perceived peer behavior” — in other words, students believed everyone else was doing it.
How depressing. We need to throw the ethics curriculum out the window and start fresh because whatever we’ve been doing is inadequate. How do you reach someone whose sole value is to make as much money as possible?
