Temple University will pay the U.S. Department of Education a $700,000 fine following the agency’s investigation into its business school submitting false data for U.S. News & World Report’s college rankings. The department argued that the Fox School of Business and Management “knowingly and intentionally” gave incorrect information in an attempt to boost the reputation of its online MBA and other programs. The university already reached a multimillion dollar settlement with students in the business school who sued after they felt they were misled.
