FSU business management ‘a waste of money’
Posted June 06, 2018 15:16:20FSU business administration professor and FSU graduate Kevin P. Williams has spoken out about the school’s lack of business management in his blog post titled FSU’s business administration is a waste of time.
Williams was one of the first FSU graduates to receive the Dean of Business Administration position in 2018.
He is now the director of the College of Business and Management.
He said FSU should consider having a business administration degree as part of the university’s curriculum.”FSU has an outstanding business administration program and its only a matter of time until business administration graduates are able to apply to the top of the list,” Williams wrote.
“FSU needs to find the right business management programs to attract top students and ensure that we have the right mix of graduates in the best business programs.
I think FSU has a chance to be a top business school if it has an administration program that matches the breadth of the school.”
Williams said business management is not a subject that can be taught in the school.
“I think business administration has been a subject of controversy since the early days of the department,” Williams said.
“I don’t think we’ve been as good of an administration school as I would have liked, but I think we are starting to get better.
I know the business community is very concerned about it.
We need to start getting that right.
We have a lot of things that are happening in business right now that could benefit from an administration course.”FSU students have been frustrated about business administration programs over the past several years.
The department is now facing a crisis of students who have graduated with business management degrees but are not ready to apply, a trend that has sparked an outpouring of support for the department.
“It’s a waste,” Williams told News24 in an interview.
“It’s not the way you want to grow your business.
It’s not what you want your students to learn.
It is a completely different skill set.
And it’s not something that is taught well.
We can learn it.”
The school has seen a drop in enrollment in recent years, and its business administration students are also graduating with bachelor’s degrees.
It also has been accused of not teaching the skills students need to succeed in the business world.
Williams said the business administration department should be a part of FSU.
“We need to take a long look at what is best for our students, what is what’s best for the university, what’s the best way to help them succeed, and to not be just a bunch of graduates,” Williams explained.
“If we want to be the best university in the world we have to be willing to do that, and that’s what we’re going to be doing for the next 10 years.”
Williams is the latest FSU senior to speak out against the school, after former business school students also spoke out in recent months.
In April, the department launched an online survey that asked students to rate their experience with business administration.
The poll found that only a small minority of students said they were satisfied with their experience.FSU President Michael W. Danneman told the News24 editorial board in May that he wanted to make business administration a priority in the university.
Williams, who said he did not want to give the university any more responsibility for the students’ education, said that FSU needs a program that reflects the breadth and depth of the college.
“What we need is a university that can bring people together, that can connect people to the people in their lives, and it’s a different experience for every student,” Williams added.
