ABSTRACT
The author gives his opinion about the goals of master of business administration (MBA) degree programs at universities and says that most of these programs selfishly focus only on building successful business careers without thinking about social concerns and ethics. Society is not built entirely on successful businesses, but also individual and family freedoms established by fair governments and laws.
