Consumer Warning


I see business students, bright-eyed and eager, and wonder if they could use a consumer warning such as "Please don't let all of the case studies, charts, and theories keep you from:
  • Speaking up when you see something that's wrong;

  • Regarding your co-workers as people and not as resources, capital, or some other godawful term;

  • A daily and diligent smugness avoidance regimen;

  • Humility; and

  • Caring."

One of the most memorable things I took away from my MBA program at Tulane was a professor that said MBA doesn't stand for "Master of Brutal Action" but should stand for "Modesty Before Arrogance."

He didn't get tenure and had to go.

E,

I heard that it was Mediocre But Arrogant.

No offense intended.
