The Wall Street Journal asked that question this week (a big thank you to MBA Cookie for passing the story to me).
The WSJ story (read it here) suggests that while MBAs are great at math and analytics, they aren’t so good at explaining what it all means. Or at giving presentations in general. Or even writing emails. Apparently most of us are pretty language deficient and are lucky if we speak in complete, coherent sentences.
And, to top it off, companies are starved for language-proficient MBAs.
Thanks to my indepth study of supply and demand these last few years, I’d say this is ehhhhhxcellent news for me (insert mental image of The Simpons’ Mr. Burns rubbing his hands together with a wicked smile).
