Am I being too cynical? Majors edition
I’ve written about this in the comments many times but I have a long standing opposition to Paying for the Party type majors where success is seemingly more about social connections and cultural capital. And I am also opposed to things which seem like majors in buzzwords.
The University of San Francisco has a major in Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Am I being too cynical in thinking that this is basically more of a marketing ploy and buzzwords than an actual major?
I read this major as saying “Silicon Valley, Tech, and Start-Ups are big in the Bay Area. We are in the Bay Area. Silicon Valley people like ‘entrepreneurship and innovation’. We will attract
naive suckers prospective students with what is basically a business or business-lite major with a shiny new name.
How does one teach someone to be an entrepreneur or innovative?
