Ideas for A Business School
Thorstein Veblen thought this would become the case and complained about the vocational corruption of Higher Education early in the twentieth century. On the other hand, Andrew Rosen, CEO of Kaplan, presents such vocational focus and education for a purpose as the only valid education model acceptable in the twenty-first, in his crisply written polemic favouring private education, Change.edu. We wish to swim against the stream for exactly the reason we are trying to set up a brand new school: I believe business education has lost its purpose and currently producing students without any perspective or ability to connect their learning to who they should become themselves. Business education is currently focused, largely, on creating humanoids in search of a boss, or a bonus, depending on which end of the spectrum the student is.
