The last few years have shown us the darker side of our economic system. Greed trumped honesty, the quick buck triumphed over loyalty. All this has produced an enormous tax payer funded bailout of the financial sector and the recent passage of a financial regulations bill. But not everything about a recession is bad. Recessions breed new ideas, and new ideas move the world forward. In economic despair people return to school to gain new skills that are more adaptable and higher paying. Many people go in search of an advanced business degree from a top graduate business schools. US News and World Report recently released their list of the top graduate business schools for entrepreneurship and Babson College beat out Stanford, M.I.T., and Harvard to top the list. Attending these prestigious schools allows a person to gain the knowledge and experience to go out into the world and make a difference. We have seen the misery and despair that a recession can cause but hopefully in the next decade graduates from top graduate business schools make a difference and move the economy forward.
