Business schools try to train people for the corporate environment not
for being entrepreneurs.
Upon graduation with my MBA I went into a big bank as a corporate
banker. After 6 months of this it was my impression that most bank
executives are ass kissers. I then transferred to data processing where
I was making more money as a programmer/analyst than many bank VPs.
The bottom line for the business schools is who pays the big bucks in
donations. I went to Emory, where just about every building on campus
was named after the chairman of Coca Cola (or a family member or
predecessor). They have since renamed the business school after the now
current chairman of Coke.
I don't have the stats on my finger tips, but a lot of businesses are
started each year and most of them do not survive.
