Connie Bagley: Recession Boosts Interest in Entrepreneurship
Connie Bagley was quoted in a Street.com story that looked at the popularity of entrepreneurship and small business courses during the downturn as some students move away from pursuing careers in finance. Bagley said, "In some ways, it's like during the Internet bubble when you had a tremendous number of [students] leaving to do start-ups. You had people wondering if it was worth it to stay and complete their MBA. Once the bubble popped, all of a sudden you see a shift back to the more traditional consulting and investment banking. It's a very cyclical aspect." Members of the SOM Entrepreneurship Club were also quoted in the article.
