You forgot to say "except for the universities I teach for, those are really exceptional".

I once read that what top financial firms look for in an MBA is not what the student learns, but that she was talented enough to get into a top school, not to mention confident and motivated enough to commit huge $ sums to her education. I remember thinking they should simply recruit successful MBA applicants and skip the long expensive bit of completing a degree at Harvard or Wharton.

Perhaps a bit of the same principal applies here...


I wish I could say that "my unveristy is the exception" in all honesty, but I think this problem is insitutional rather than in a few isolated universities. It won't change until the system has changed, and things change either very slowly or very quickly in Japan.
