D. has a point in that most business teachers teach business as working in a 9-5 job or preparing for one. I don't think business teachers teach people how to run business which, IMO, is what they should be doing. And I also think D. has a point in that people should have a solid liberal arts foundation in any good education, perhaps business degrees don't have that.The day she was maimed
She let out a wail
and said to herself
I shall prevail
I shall reign in my big open world
where the black abyss cannot be heard
away from the insane civilization
where reality is trivialization
I shall stand free
I shall stand tall
they didn't care
they didn't touch me at all
By the way, I never said business was useless. I said a Business Studies degree was useless from a utilitarian standpoint, no more useful to the business environment than an Arts degree. If you're going to spend 80 yrs or so of your life slaving away trying to earn a living, three years of your time to study something you enjoy and to learn about the real world is hardly a waste of time in the grand scheme of a person's life. It might be a waste as far as a business is concerned, but it's not a waste as far as humanity is concerned. Money is supposed to be a tool to be used by humans, not vice versa.
By the way, in western society, most of the economy and the businesses aren't involved in producing anything, anyway. They make money from money, they're basically ripping off the countries in the world which do produce goods.
Tell that to Gordon Brown, the current Prime Minister of Great Britain and former Chancellor of the Exchequer. He studied History at Edinburgh.
Excuse me? Grow up and find a job? I already have a degree, I have worked for my government and for an international bank. I have paid my tax and I saved up money from my paid job to pay for my my degree, so you are way off target with your false assumptions about me. I am studying for this degree not because it will get me a job (although it certainly will!) but because I enjoy the subject and because I'm not some "new money" wannabe from the lower classes. I plan to be as knowledgable and educated as possible and I am paying for it with my own money, so you have zero case against me.
D:You sound like someone who is just bitter and resentful that they never went to university and is stuck in some dead end job. Get over it.
P.S. It's spelt "cheque".
