It's business school week here at the Glom, and if you're wondering what is going on with that Milbank Tweed education course at Harvard Law School, my guess is this: HBS and Wharton and all the rest of the b schools, in addition to charging crazy tuitions, do a great deal of executive education, that is, continuing education courses, conferences, and seminars at a very high cost. It is yet another reason why the schools are so well-heeled. And yet law schools really don't do this at all. It was only a matter of time - the only surprise to me is why now? And for that, I'd be inclined to point you to a certain financial crisis that occured just as HLS was building its largest building yet, speculative though such an analysis would be.
While we're on the business school topic, I'll point you to another position announcement after the jump, this one from the College of Charleston, subject of this enconium by the Times's restaurant critic.
