Corporate scandals cause critics to assign a portion of the blame to business educators and demand business schools strengthen ethics curriculum. This study examines the importance alumni placed on ethics and social responsibility in their assessment of MBA Program Effectiveness. Scales were developed for MBA Program Effectiveness as well as the predictor variables, Qualitative Skills, Quantitative Skills and Citizenship. Results of a stepwise multiple regression indicate MBA Program Effectiveness was predicted by Qualitative and Quantitative Skills. Citizenship did not enter the equation. Apparently, alumni did not use their program's ethical judgment and social responsibility components to assess MBA Program Effectiveness.
