Justice Stevens on the "Value" of an MBA

From his excellent new book:

These distributors seemed to share certain qualities that set them apart from the senior executives of the major companies with which they did business. They were hard workers who devoted long hours to their businesses. A friendly outlook on life rather than punctilious adherence to rules of etiquette enabled them to get along well with their employees, their customers, and members of the general public. I don’t remember any who had a college education, but they were uniformly intelligent—more so, in my judgment, than most executives in the corporate world who had earned graduate degrees in business administration.
