Business boot camp
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.
