Kant believed that a behavior is only ethical when it can remain beneficial if performed universally by everyone. Based on this perspective alone, the students were unethical. Only a few of the students were able to log in and see their acceptance status; others received errors or blank pages. Although the hacking was not done with malicious intent doing so was a breach in trust and integrity between the applicants and Colleges. I believe both trust and integrity or two of the strongest building blocks in a solid business foundation. If the students couldn’t be trusted to wait for their acceptance decision like any other applicant, in my opinion, their judgment could come into question later for something more business impacting. This decision to Hack into Harvard or attempt to by some is not a good moral decision and therefore was handled correctly but the Universities.
