Henry Mintzberg, professor of management studies at McGill University, is very forthright about what is wrong with management schools and the specimens that they produce.

Instead of teaching students in the art and craft of running a business, they churn out self-interested young people who have little ability and less concern for the long-term interests of the firm that hires them.
But, it is for sure that they turn everyone else green, when their paycheck is announced on the newspapers. Enough to love to hate them!
So much for the superbrats!
