University of Missouri-Kansas City students say they're ultimately satisfied with answers over questions regarding the college's business school, which an audit found it knowingly submitted false data in applying for rankings and awards. 

The Kansas City Star reports the university's chancellor met with about 40 students Wednesday in the Student Government Association meeting chambers. Students questioned whether a lack of transparency and communication among school officials and students were partly to blame for the problems at the Henry W. Bloch School of Management.

Chancellor Leo Morton assured students the issues at the business school weren't representative of a bigger problem on campus. Following the audit, the Princeton Review announced in February that it was pulling the school's 2011 through 2014 top 25 rankings for graduate and undergraduate entrepreneurship programs.
