Abstract

Karen Conners, aged 35, a bright MBA student, is subjected to what she perceives to be harsh treatment by Ali Zahedi, a tenured Associate Professor and Director of the MBA program. Zahedi threatens to make it impossible for Karen, who is also his graduate assistant, to complete her MBA degree or to be accepted into a PHD program unless she continues to meet demands made by him that she believes to be unreasonable. The stress that Karen has been under for the past year has affected her mental and physical health to the extent that she solicited the advice of other faculty to assist her in her time of crisis.
