September 20, 2006

A survey of more than 5,000 students at 32 graduate schools in the US and Canada found that 56% of graduate business students admitted to cheating at least once during the last academic year. Among non-business graduate students, it was 47%. The report, “Academic Dishonesty in Graduate Business Programs: Prevalence, Causes, and Proposed Action,” is scheduled for publication this month in Academy of Management Learning & Education.
