The Corruption of Ethics in Higher Education
Keywords: Corruption and Fraud, Students and Student Development, Bologna Process,
AbstractUniversities can be corrupt through the abuse of authority for both personal and material gain. In order to reduce corruption, quality assurance mechanisms might include anti-corruption evidence as a criterion for accreditation. Another implication is that development assistance agencies that make investments in higher education, may have to consider the level of corruption when making those investments.
