Are you implying B-school graduates are not inclined to "do" things?


Yes, I do think that the grading setup in most business schools creates a bias for analysis and talking rather than action. A great essay on the subject is Bob Sutton's book "The Knowing Doing Gap".

I'm not saying that people from B School don't do things -- you're a great example of someone who is a "knower" and a "doer" -- but I think you would agree it can be both a haven and a breeding ground for people who talk the talk but can't walk it.

Thanks for commenting.

Am I right in saying that this d.school develops technocrats in the students and teaches them to innovate products/culture which has immediate positive impact upon society?
