Business boot camp

I don't know about you but when I hear the overused boot camp thing, I think of mud and high walls to climb.

When applied to business, I see The Donald saying, "You're fired."

But Melissa Korn, WSJ, Mar 7, 2013, says many liberal arts students and others without a formal MBA or biz degree take intensive business courses called bridge programs, which are a four-week cram on accounting and corporate life.

Sans mud, presumably.These can cost up to $10K.

Fullbridge also teams with schools to amp up student hireability. Or the schools put together their own intensive programs.

Taught are finance, career visioning whatever that is, and marketing--to name a few things.

Most students are well motivated anyway--does this really help? Why not? It's only money.
