The Wall Street Journal this week highlighted continuing education
programs at Northwestern and York universities for workers with MBA
degrees. Designed for mid-career associates who earned MBA degrees
before 1995, the so-called Renaissance program at Northwestern's
Kellogg School of Management seeks to bring managers up to speed on
advances in their field. The program at York's Schulich
School of Business helps students update their business skills and gain
more in-depth knowledge in a specific discipline.
Such programs beg the question: Should highly degreed individuals, such as those with MBAs, continue their education?
