The Decline of Ethical Behavior in Business

These days what is considered truly ethical? It seems like the fine line between ethical and unethical is becoming a blur to many business professionals. In 2006, a study reported that MBA graduate students cheat the most on tests when compared to any other graduate non-business students.
