Lessons university-based business schools should learn vicariously-rather than through experience-from university athletics

Abstract:

University athletic programs at times engage in cheating, dishonesty, and
other practices which embarrass the university. They can promote policies that compromise
the academic integrity of their universities. Much of the root cause of this trouble
is based in a desire for prestige and the need for money to support that quest for
prestige. The university-based business school also seeks prestige and desires increased
funding in order to support achievement of that prestige. This essay outlines four pitfalls
that have beset university athletics that could well happen to business schools.
Some of these pitfalls seem hopelessly irreversible. University business schools would
do well to learn the lessons of these pitfalls vicariously rather than suff ering through
them by direct experience.
