Abstract

A professor makes an unusual offer to the students in an MBA leadership class. They can cheat the system by including in the exam one question that they know upfront. The professor agrees to support the cheating and let the students pass by offering 49 (and later on 50) points (out of the 100 points needed for a perfect A score). Using this case as an experiential learning tool can be extremely beneficial and a very rich learning experience, but it is also risky. Please read the Teaching Note thoroughly before actually making the offer, instead of teaching the case as a regular case.

Teaching and learning

This item is suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
