Duke's business school wants promise from MBA students

DURHAM -- Duke University's business school is planning to gather hundreds of graduate students this fall to sign the school's honor code and promise not to cheat. The Herald-Sun of Durham reported Monday that Duke officials are discussing plans that could bring 420 first-year MBA students in the Fuqua School of Business into Cameron Indoor Stadium to sign the document together. The move comes more than a year after nearly three dozen graduate students were found to have cheated on a take-home exam. In all, 34 graduate students were convicted of cheating on the exam and other assignments. Nine students were expelled, and 15 were suspended for a year and given a failing grade in the class. The remaining students received failing grades. (Copyright 2008 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
