In response to mothershipA spokesperson for NUS Business School said: “We hold our faculty to the highest standards and are conducting an additional faculty reference assessment. The faculty member will not be teaching modules pending our assessment.”

Why the public watched it

Chen, from Peking University, a top university in China, is said to have graduated from a fake university in Europe and claimed to be a “military adviser” to tech company Huawei.

Members of the public in China have verified his stated credentials after Huawei released a public statement denying Chen’s claims about his ties to the company and its founder Ren Zhengfei.

This announcement sparked public criticism a few weeks ago.

Huawei says it’s all fake

“Huawei does not know her and it is impossible for her to know Huawei,” the tech company said on July 6.

The company said it saw “more than 10,000 articles online,” with some calling her a “Huawei military adviser,” and even Chen’s comments about the company.

It was even written that she had met Ren.

Huawei called these articles “false information”.

bizarre anecdote

The strangest anecdote stems from the fact that Chen supposedly remembered an alleged meeting with Ren.

This anecdote appeared in a popular article written by Chen published in early 2017.

She went so far as to claim that Huawei founder Ren acted as her driver after insisting on picking her up in person.

Chen responded with his own statement after Huawei’s statement was released.

She claimed that most of the articles that mentioned her and Huawei were not written by her.

She also claimed that the company was just a case study for her work.

What the public thought

Online sleuths who searched Chen’s background found that his doctorate was awarded two decades ago by an unaccredited university.

The scholar is said to have obtained a Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) degree from the European University of Ireland in 2001.

But the organization has no website and is not one of the 25 legitimate Irish universities recognized by the Chinese Ministry of Education.

Irish weather reported in 2011 that the “university” was operating out of a Dublin address without official approval and had no office, according to the SCMP.

In 2005, Chen continued his postgraduate research at Nanjing University, according to his own biographical data.

In fact, she was included in Fortune’s list of China’s 25 Most Influential Businesswomen for four consecutive years from 2015 to 2018.

In addition to her tenure at NUS, Chen is also Dean of the Beijing International MBA (BiMBA) Business School at Peking University, as well as a professor and PhD director at the School of Business Administration at South China University of Technology.

The issue of academic fraud has frustrated people in China as there is intense pressure to attend top schools while exams can be life-changing experiences.
