The End of Enron?

"Are you smart?".
"I'm f**king smart"

That was what what Jeffrey Keith "Jeff" Skilling said during his admissions interview at the Harvard Business School. He got his M.B.A. from Harvard , was in the top five percent of his class and joined McKinsey as a consultant. It was a dream run and he would have never imagined that he would end up something like this.

The episode at Enron has stressed the importance of ethics in Business at B-Schools .The former chief executive's prison sentence would be a gentle reminder for any student who thinks of "crossing the line" and doing something that will hurt the trust of the stakeholders.
