ChatGPT is once again embroiled in a surprising development. In an MBA (Master of Business Administration) course, a postgraduate academic degree of administrators and business executives, the artificial intelligence chatbot has achieved a feat that many might not have expected.

ChatGPT has been tested by a teacher and exceeds the students’ results

  • Christian Terwiesch, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, one of the most prestigious business schools in the US, decided to put ChatGPT to the test and found that the chatbot outperformed some of his students in the Operations Management course;
  • In his article published this week, Terwiesch claims that ChatGPT received a B to B grade in the area check. ‘This has important implications for business school education,’ the professor said, pointing to changes needed in testing and teaching policies.
  • ChatGPT has raised concerns from several academics, and there have been multiple reports of students using the chatbot to cheat on essays and tests.

One of the academics expressing concern about the impact of ChatGPT is Jerry Davis, a professor at the University of Michigan’s Ross Business School. According to the Financial Times, he called a faculty meeting to discuss the impact of the AI ​​tool.

“I’m one of the alarmists,” Davis said. “Our entire educational enterprise is challenged by this, and it only gets more challenging. It’s time to think top down,” he added.

Another academic who opened debates on the subject is Francisco Veloso, Dean of Imperial College Business School in London. “We are having serious discussions and a working group is studying the impact of ChatGPT and other similar tools that we know are being used by our resourceful and creative students, and we will be drafting guidelines on that shortly,” he told the Financial Times.

In the last few months it has been widely reported that Microsoft would be interested in doing some operations related to ChatGPT. Some speculation indicates that the software giant is considering a $10 billion investment in Open AI, the company behind the chatbot, on top of the $1 billion already invested in 2019.

Although ChatGPT works with Microsoft and other entrepreneurs like Elon Musk, founder of Tesla and current CEO of Twitter, some people are skeptical about the progress of the technology. Many experts point out that the chatbot can radically disrupt various activities of daily living, including education, work, and of course, internet browsing.

On the other hand, although ChatGPT proved to be educated and analytical in the test responses, Terwiesch pointed out some shortcomings of the chatbot in his article. According to him, the numerical capabilities of the tool were very limited the professor did not test the chatbot in relation to other MBA areas such as marketing, finance, accounting and other disciplines.

“I was struck by the beauty of the text conciseness, choice of words, structure. That was absolutely brilliant,” said Terwiesch. “But the math is pretty terrible. The language and the intuition are there, but even relatively basic high school math has gone horribly wrong.”

In response to the Financial Times, the ChatGPT team tried to demonstrate calm, ensuring that the chatbot was very “unlikely” to overthrow the MBA, noting that the tool lacked some capabilities that the course could develop.

“While AI and machine learning can automate certain tasks and make them more efficient, they still lack the ability to fully replicate the complex decisionmaking and critical thinking skills developed through MBA programs,” ChatGPT said. “Additionally, MBA programs offer networking opportunities and access to industry experts that cannot be replicated through technology,” he added.
