The really interesting thing abt the NYT article was that it presented Film
Studies (and particularly filmmaking) as a way for students to show that they
have actually finished a complete project. The tone of the article was very
anti-MBA, implyng that business school students learn a lot of theories and
case studies but don't complete any projects of their own. I've given copies
of the article to many of my interns in the past 8 months and it's always
greeted with great relief--at last, a way to justify comm arts not just to their
parents, but also to their friends and potential future employers! Jocelyn
