AI bot passes exam at world’s top business school as it outperforms students

An AI bot has managed to pass a final exam at the world’s top business school.

Christian Terwiesch, a professor at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, one of the oldest and most prestigious business schools in the world, decided to put ChatGPT, an AI bot that has gone viral for its ability to seemingly write anything, to the test.

To his surprise, he found that the free AI outperformed some of his students on his operations management course, a core module for the prestigious Masters in Business Administration course.

Less than 900 of the 6,300 people who applied for the school’s MBA programme were accepted.

Business magazine Fortune reported in November that the school's 2022 graduates were earning $175,000 (£142,000) on average when they left, not including bonuses.
