Vivek Wadhwa No Longer Advises Startups to Hire MBAs

Vivek Wadhwa: Why I No Longer Advise Startups to Hire M.B.A.s - The Accelerators - WSJ: " . . . Instead of M.B.A.s, what I advise students with technology backgrounds to complete are one-year long masters of engineering-management programs like the one at Duke University—where I teach. These teach management, marketing, law and accounting skills and skim over the intricacies of finance and investment banking. And they are half the price of an M.B.A. After all, the skills that startups care about aren’t how to conceive new types of financial products, but how to create technologies that actually do good for the world."
