Just thought I would post this... kind of funny and interesting. It's a quote from Jeffrey Skilling - former Enron CEO and current Waseca Correctional Facility inmate.

Quote:
During his admissions interview for Harvard Business School, he was asked if he was smart, to which he famously replied, "I'm f***ing smart." Skilling earned his M.B.A. from Harvard Business School in 1979, graduating in the top five percent of his class.

Skilling is very smart. Unfortunately, he feels he is so smart that small things like law and accountancy rules don't matter.

Single handedly made every MBA include an ethics course. He should put that on his resume.

It wasn't lost on me that Harvard had placed a prominent ethics question in their app last year....
