Duke MBA cheating scandal may reflect national trend

New York Times

Duke University is trying to deal with a cheating scandal involving 34 first-year business graduate students in an era when national surveys have suggested that cheating is widespread among their peers.

In a survey released last September by a Rutgers University professor, 56 percent of business graduate students admitted having cheated, compared with 54 percent in engineering, 48 percent in education and 45 percent in law school. More than 5,300 students at 54 universities were surveyed from 2002 to 2004."
The sad part about it is they are only cheating themselves out of a good education. When you get out in the world, you cannot hide from yourself. Your competence and character show through. Hopefully, these young men and women will come to learn the facts of life on this subject.
