IN TOUCH : Their cheating hearts

It seems MBA students are more prone to cheating than colleagues in other academic disciplines – according to recent survey of over 5000 students in 32 North American graduate schools.
The study explored 13 different types of cheating from copying classmate’s test answers to lifting non-attributed sentences from the internet and found 56 percent of graduate business students admitted to cheating at least once in the year compared with 47 percent of non-business students. Of course it could be they’re just more upfront about their lack of ethics – or is this further proof that there’s not much honour in business?
