Redesigning the MBA…

Taking him at his word — which, by the way, turned out to be a universally-applicable assumption with Joe — I told him that I would wipe out entirely the courses then taught in the first half of first year, and instead teach only Philosophy and Physics. My reasoning was that MBA education had become too applied, and graduates didn’t understand enough about the basic science of management. For me, Philosophy is the basic science of people and Physics is the basic science of things, and business is nothing but the integration of people and things.
