Cheating and MBA programs

In a recent survey, Donald McCabe has found that "more than half of graduate business students nationwide admitted to cheating on MBA exams." According to McCabe:

“I think students cheat because of the characteristics of the business schools themselves,” McCabe said. “It’s all about getting power, money and taking shortcuts.”

Fifty-six percent of graduate business students admitted to cheating, McCabe added, while only 47 percent of their non-business counterparts confessed to it.
