i could have gone to MD business school as a 12 year old and gotten a degree.
Tiff please explain this and also please post your sister's letter about curing aids
I have no idea what the fuck that is. My sister was a 16 year old college senior when she wrote that speech. Let's have some perspective. I'm sure you'll be happy to know she is a first year medical student at Temple looking to specialize in pediatric cardiovascular surgery.

MD's bschool gets a bad rep. It teaches you what you need to know for the most part. The top 10% of MD could be succesful at any school in the country. I know GOTerpss will disagree
Good on her for being in med school, but come on, "looking to specialize"? That's not something you seriously tell reasonably intelligent people to try to impress them.
dude there are posts of you reminding us how funny it is, so I know you don't mean that.
Im not a doctor. I wasn't trying to impress more so showing how she went from curing aids to curing the hearts of men. ;)
Maybe more like 3-5%, but the top of the heap at MD could compete anywhere. No doubt about it.
Regarding business school education as a whole, I'd ban undergraduate business schools if I could. You can offer relevant classes to people who are interested, but I wouldn't offer degrees in it. If I'm running a business, a psych major that knows the basics of marketing is 100x more valuable than a marketing major that knows the basics of psych, etc.
My UMD business school experience was pretty much learning definitions of basic business terms and learning how to apply a bunch of formulas. IMO, students would get much more out of learning a core discipline, then learning how to apply that to real world situations later.
Well, I mean, that’s what it is. I doodoo and then listen to Katy Perry.
I'll be happy when tiffles finally holds a job for more then a year or two. The guy appears not to have a humble bone in his body and lacking this basic human quality I doubt he will ever stick in any organization for any length of time. Success in any endeavor requires much more then a flashy degree which makes this thread about entitlements a little premature in tiffles case.
Check back post graduation tiffles and lets hear your position on entitlements.

Accounting, finance, and "business" are different things. A generic business degree IMO is pretty similar to a generic government or political science degree. Accounting and finance are actual disciplines.
FWIW, I don't think any undergraduate degree really demonstrates anyone's value for "the workplace", and if you're hiring entry level people the most important thing is getting someone that is intelligent, willing to learn, and willing to put in work.
I majored in finance. It's not a discipline (or at least not one you have to learn in school). I learned more in the first week on my job than I learned at UMD. Any decent liberal arts major could pick it up.
Accounting is different since there are actual regulations over what classes you have to take.
Well, scratch that one then too.
It all ties back to the original point though, that smart, hard working people can usually pick up any job regardless of what piece of paper they have.
