"Officials at the University of Missouri-Kansas City’s business school knowingly submitted false data when applying for rankings and awards from national organizations, according to a report released Friday by the University of Missouri System."

However, report found that the ranking that the school appears in -- namely, it was ranked as the top university in the world for innovation management research by the Journal of Product Innovation Management -- was deserved, even considering the faulty data submitted.

Although Bloch's MBA program isn't ranked by any of the major MBA rankings publications, the school is accredited by AACSB International. The report doesn't say that the school submitted any misleading data to AACSB.

The original report was down by Pricewaterhousecoopers. Here's the PDF:
