The New York Times reports that in January, just as Martoma’s insider trial was getting underway, Stanford had confirmed that Martoma graduated from university with a master’s degree in business administration in 2003. But on Wednesday, a Stanford official said that Martoma no longer had a degree from the university.
Barbara Buell, a Stanford spokeswoman, said she could not discuss the change in degree status for Martoma, citing federal privacy laws. But Ms. Buell said that as a general policy, Stanford is vigilant in policing the integrity of its admission procedures.
'Stanford’s policy provides it can revoke an offer of acceptance and a degree, if it was found that an individual gained admission through false pretenses', she said.
