    Why so many Business school accreditations? Is there redundancy?

    And this one sounds like it has an SJW agenda veiled under all the common buzzwords, something I'm entirely sick of.

    “While students are demanding an ethical curriculum, business schools are demanding MBA candidates who will become ethical leaders,”

    It's not unreasonable for a student to expect that their graduate program will pay some attention to the ethical principles of their chosen profession. On the other hand, I've seen no indication that business schools are demanding MBA candidates who will become ethical leaders. Mostly I think that business schools are demanding MBA candidates who pay their tuition bills on time. As for this new accrediting agency, I'm not sure I see a need. Of course, one of the principles of business is to create a need and then fill it . . . right? I'm happy to let market forces decide this one.

    The data would be dated but I did read about some research showing that MBA students left their programs with less ethical awareness than when they entered; that being said... this smells of window dressing

    Typical scenario. Grad gets job. Boss says "Forget what they taught you about ethics in B-school. We're here to make money. Do as I tell you."
    Grad wants to keep his/her job - so he/she does as the boss says.

    Years later, that grad is now the boss. Says the same thing to new recruits.
