I just noted that the Swedish Board of Higher Education has published a report about “Diploma Mills and Faked Exams” (pdf-format, Swedish).
Given that Labour Market Minister Sven Otto Littorin’s somewhat questionable MBA from “Fairfax University” was the talk of the political town last week and Littorin was evetually forced to remove the reference to the exam on his official website, that could be mandatory reading for aspiring politicians.
One question, though: Why did it take the blogosphere nearly a year to figure that out?
PS: Littorin isn’t the only politician who have presented problematic academic merits. Some years ago it was discovered that a Danish government minister never had finished the MA on her resume. Oops…
