Entrepreneur school or business school?

Melissa Korn, WSJ, Sept 5, 2013, says special schools for those set on starting businesses are cropping up.

Students get enough marketing, coding, and operations training to get their idea off the ground. One is General Assembly, another Starter School.

The latter has a nine-month program for $33K.

Startup Institute is 8 weeks--and is in Boston, NY, and Chicago.

For one thing, an MBA does not mean much in startup circles.

What do you think? I think this is part of how the whole world of higher ed is fragmenting. In many cases, training is replacing "education."

I think it's good.
