2nd professor quits amid ranking scandal at Missouri college
Associated Press Updated: February 20, 2015 at 6:46 pm

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) A second professor has resigned from the University of Missouri-Kansas City after an audit found that its business school knowingly submitted false data when applying for rankings and awards from national organizations.

The 15,000-student university said Friday that John Norton's exodus as associate director of its Regnier Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation will take effect March 15.

Norton's former supervisor, Michael Song, stepped down as the institute's director early last year but continued to teach at the school before resigning last week.

The university was stripped of its rankings after Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon requested an audit of the school's data because of a Kansas City Star article that called the Henry W. Bloch School of Management's pursuit of higher rankings for its Regnier Institute into question. The 35-page audit by PricewaterhouseCoopers found the business school knowingly submitted false data when applying for rankings and awards from national organizations.
