Thought this article about MBA-like degrees for scientists was interesting. Here's something you don't see every day:

Sloan left engineering out of its grant specifications because, said Carol B. Lynch, PSM director at the Council of Graduate Schools, "engineers get it and already understand the value of a master's degree."

I actually agree with her opinion; it's just a bit of a shock to the system to see a quotation that gives engineers this kind of credit.

The credit's due, though. I tend to ignore the business side of engineering ed., but it's something we need to be doing, and it's something we're getting right increasingly often, I think.
