SCROLL DOWN (AND CHECK ARCHIVES) FOR AMMUNITION I -- III
Peter Benoliel, former CEO of Quaker Chemical, looks at the educaaiaoan landscape and concludes:
"… slightly over 1.6 million bachelor’s degrees were conferred … The majority of these degrees (52 percent) were in very specific vocational fields. … [R]oughly half of our students have pursued … a rather narrow educational / training experience that informs only a portion of a human’s most fundamental desires and concerns. …
" Of the 52 percent receiving degrees in specific vocational pursuits some 348,000 … receive degrees in business and management. … I can categorically state … that an undergraduate degree in in business administration at best prepares an individual for entry-level positions. Such degrees… in no way prepare a student for advancement and leadership."
