Cheaters Never Win

As a graduate level student myself, I found this fairly interesting...
Graduate business students in the United States and Canada are more likely to cheat on their work than their counterparts in other academic fields, the author of a research paper said on Wednesday.

The study of 5,300 graduate students in the United States and Canada found that 56 percent of graduate business students admitted to cheating in the past year, with many saying they cheated because they believed it was an accepted practice in business.

Following business students, 54 percent of graduate engineering students admitted to cheating, as did 50 percent of physical science students, 49 percent of medical and health-care students, 45 percent of law students, 43 percent of liberal arts students and 39 percent of social science and humanities students.
45% isn't good, but at least we aren't the worst. I would make a crack about why social sciences/humanities is so low (they just make everything up anyway), but I won't. Oh wait. I just did.

Many institutions limit access to their online information. Making this information available will be an asset to all.
