On December 2, 2016, an article was published by Reuters disclosing that New Oriental has been accused of participating in college application fraud. According to the article, “[e]ight former and current New Oriental employees…told Reuters the firms have engaged in college application fraud, including writing application essays and teacher recommendations, and falsifying high school transcripts.”
The same day, Reuters published an update revealing that due to its earlier report detailing academic fraud allegations at New Oriental, the American International Recruitment Council (“AIRC”) stated that it “will investigate the company in response to the report”, and the AIRC’s president-elect referred to the allegations as “highly concerning.”
When this information was revealed to the public, the value of New Oriental fell sharply on December 2, 2016, causing investors severe harm.
