Getting In MBA Admissions Directors Tackle Plagiarism
Business Week - 06/15/2011
Business schools are making it a priority to combat plagiarism in admissions essays, following an incident last year when a Penn State admissions officer discovered dozens of MBA applicants who copied verbatim from an online essay. Next Wednesday, admissions officers will be gathering in Boston to speak about plagiarism and integrity in application essays at the Graduate Management Admission Council’s annual conference. Carrie Marcinkevage from Penn State’s Smeal College of Business (Smeal Full-Time MBA Profile), will be moderating the session, along with other admissions officers.
