Six graduate students in a fellowship program at Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management have been accused of cheating by their peers.
According to a report by business school news site Poets & Quants, the six male cheaters were observed exchanging exams, copying answers, and talking with one another during an accounting final as part of the school's MS in Management Studies program.
Poets & Quants reports that there was no proctor and the professor administering the exam was shuttling between tests in two rooms.
This isn't the first time this has happened. Students who spoke with Poets & Quants alleged that the cheating students were also grouped together in the back of the room during a statistics final prior to the accounting exam where again, there were no proctors.
These same students reported the cheating but accused the Kellogg School of assigning a biased student to conduct the student side of an honor code investigation, of failing to punish the cheating, and of allowing their names to be shared with the purported cheaters, which led to threatening phone calls from the cheating students.
