BUSINESS SCHOOLS TAKE MORE STUDENTS STRAIGHT OUT OF COLLEGE

THE CHRONICLE FOR HIGHER EDUCATION
Jan 21, 2008

A growing number of business schools have developed programs to catch promising students without work experience. SERDAR SIKCA, a first-year student at the Owen Graduate School of Management, says some older students may have qualms about their younger classmates. "I was studying in a group for final exams, and I was talking about an assignment and the work-experience issue came up," he says. "One of my friends made a comment about 'Oh, those young kids haven't been out in the work force and don't know what they're talking about.'"
