Schmidt 1 Adam Schmidt Mr. Walter Swartz MGMT 368 January 14, 2018 Hacking Harvard “Moral standards concern behavior that is serious consequence to human welfare, that can profoundly injure or benefit people” (Shaw 6). For the leaders of Duke, Dartmouth, Harvard, Carnegie Mellon, Stanford, and MIT the decision of the MBA applicants to look at their acceptance status was ethically and morally wrong. Harvard’s dean, who seemed to be the most upset about this breach in the system, explained the actions of these students as being a serious breach of trust. They viewed these students as not having the ethical mentality they expected from aspiring leaders. I personally do not agree with these University views and see these students as unethical hackers. If I was personally in their situation I would have looked at my MBA acceptance status for a few reasons. To begin, I do not see the actions of these aspiring students as qualifying them as hackers. They did not break into the system with passwords attained from criminal behavior.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
