The Fox School of Business and Management didn’t create the only MBA ranking that was ever significant. The shock of exclusion led some B schools to search for souls, no matter how brief they were. But Temple knew beforehand that the Reputation Department was missing, so it tried to lie to a particularly disreputable ranking in an attempt to attract students to its online MBA program, which made a number as a result of the above lie – a ranking.
Still, the current head of the US Department of Education is not inclined to look unkindly at schools that are doing their best to fuck unsuspecting students. And while Betty DeVos can’t be sure who will choose Joe Biden to replace her, she’s pretty sure that this person doesn’t understand things as well as she does. Before heading back to Holland for good, she’ll make sure nothing worse happens to Temple than spitting off the price of a dozen online MBAs.
Temple University is paying $ 700,000 to the US Department of Education to settle claims for the business school’s inaccurate reporting of data to US News and World Report that incorrectly improved its rankings. Under the terms of the settlement, the university does not admit any wrongdoing or liability. When allegations of inaccurate data surfaced, Temple commissioned a study with an outside law firm which found that in some cases, misreporting of data was knowledgeable and affected more than the online MBA program.
