Quote:
Shortly after R. Glenn Hubbard took over as dean of Columbia Business School in 2004, he began hearing rumblings from executives about the quality of MBA graduates. They were undoubtedly smart but often unprepared to handle the most crucial of managerial responsibilities: quickly solving problems with less than perfect information. Among those wanting more from new hires is Henry Kravis, co-founder of the private equity firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts. "I want to see MBAs who can jump in and make decisions, not jump in and learn to make decisions," he says.

Interesting, and I think a pretty wise move (I don't feel I get a lot from the HBS cases I do - they do seem very planned out).

I like the way they talk about KKR in the lead, then only mention towards the end that his opinion really isn't beneficial as they don't hire, so we can't see if he puts his money where his mouth is. That said, he probably will in the fall.
