CAN ANYTHING GOOD COME OUT OF HARVARD B-SCHOOL?
My friend Max Anderson (standing, right) says it can! The full story is in the New York Times — click here – and tells of a group of Harvard B-schoolers who have come up with something they’re calling the “MBA Oath“. According to the Times, nearly 20 percent of the graduating class have signed the “voluntary student-led pledge” stating that “the goal of a business manager is to ’serve the greater good.’” What?? The oath even “promises that Harvard M.B.A.’s will act responsibly, ethically and refrain from advancing their ‘own narrow ambitions’ at the expense of others.” Forgive me, but I need a chair.
