Academic Entitlement and Its Relationship with Perception of Cheating Ethics
Elias, Rafik Z.
Journal of Education for Business, v92 n4 p194-199 2017
Cheating is an epidemic in higher education. The author examined the psychological variable of academic entitlement and its relationship with the ethical perception of cheating using a sample of business students. Contrary to some previous research, the author found that millennials were only slightly more academically entitled than students from other generations but overall had a low sense of entitlement. Highly entitled business students viewed cheating actions as less unethical compared with less entitled students.
