dc.description A Newspaper article by Scott Bellows, an Assistant Professor in the Chandaria School of Business at USIU-Africa en_US
dc.description.abstract In continuation of the Business Talk miniseries on Kenyan education, we delve into solutions to the endemic scourge of cheating in Kenyan universities. Business Talk highlighted the prevalence, statistics, and causes of cheating at the university level in the June 7 edition whereby a staggering 82 per cent of Kenyan public university students admit to cheating. One of the most dismal examples of cheating revolves around master’s degree theses and projects. Graduate students should ideally develop a research study to solve an industry or theoretical problem. Graduate-level projects help prepare students for future problem solving when they become industry executives in the future. Sadly, cheating permeates even these would-be seminal momentous life-changing projects and we instead get more half-baked post-graduates. Some universities employ no reasonable method to crack down on master’s project or even PhD dissertation cheating. en_US
