academic business management is teh suck

I am con­stantly amazed by how such a bogus sub­ject can make its way to ter­tiary edu­ca­tion. Having stud­ied in this area for about a year now, I keep fail­ing to under­stand why study­ing a sub­ject like this should be worth a bach­e­lor degree’s time and resources, because it shouldn’t. Aca­d­e­mic busi­ness man­age­ment believes that it can breed a new gen­er­a­tion of people who can be “effi­cient man­agers” instead of “effi­cient work­ers”. Wow, sounds cool. Every­body loves to be order­ing instead of being ordered. Unfor­tu­nately as it turns out, they use it as an excuse not to teach you any­thing par­tic­u­larly useful in gen­eral, because order­ing people around is actu­ally a no brainer. While bio­chemists learn about the won­der­ful cre­ations of mother Earth, engi­neers learn about how stuff works in our civ­i­liza­tion, the busi­ness guys learn how to influ­ence other people to buy into their own ideas.

Tech­ni­cal details are for those tech­ni­cally inclined, what a polite and polit­i­cally cor­rect way to address who these busi­ness guys gen­er­ally think of as nerds. What the fuck, now they are the ones who don’t know shits and they think they can order these edu­cated people around, just because they happen to be wear­ing shiny suits or whatnot.

The busi­ness suck­ers are worms. They con­sume and aggra­vate our soci­ety with self­ish intents; the school never teaches you how to con­tribute back to the soci­ety when you’ve gotten rich.

Why do Hong Kong people, or devel­oped coun­tries in gen­eral, work more hours? Because these suck­ers keep trying to “push the limits”, they see how people much bull­shit people can put up with. If I’m paying $10,000 a month and people are still coming to the recruits, let’s try $9,000 until we’ve got just one/two guy that can put up with that bull­shit. If the work­ers seem to not mind work­ing over­time, why not have all of them work over­time? Shit, they think it’s all a board game.

Aca­d­e­mic busi­ness people never pro­duce any­thing like the sci­ence people do. I was watch­ing the TV news when I was riding on a train some days ago. It was about uni­ver­sity coop­er­at­ing with some com­pa­nies to invent a new kind of med­i­cine, help­ing the human species evolve. You’d see this kind of news every so often, yet I bet you’ve seen the slight­est trace of some­thing like this hap­pen­ing in the aca­d­e­mic busi­ness field, which does zero to help the human evo­lu­tion process.
