To be fair, 026 is the biological Anthropology, not the cultural. And you can't expect those science kids to know anything!

hm... kajed, I have no idea what you're talking about. My best guesses are, you're either being sincere (unlikely) or you think you're making a hilarious gay joke because of the word "pride". Please stop, you're only embarassing yourself.

maybe you're a great science student that will become a great doctor....however...don't ever try and defend students, in general, because more then half of us are idiots!! and quite frankly it infuriates me that you think your fellow science students will all "be directly and indirectly saving your [our] life [ves] one day." also...do everyone a favour and please don't end up being one of those cocky, arrogant residents......goodluck with med. school!

Hey Science-gal/guy,

It ain't the Social Sci people who are gonna be running those evil multi-nationals; the exploiting of workers, black-mailing of governments, bankrupting of the sick, and enhancing shareholder value is the sole prerogative of the Iveyguys/gals.

iveyguy: Sorry, the facts don't back you up. I don't know the current numbers for today, but back in 2001, the degree most likely to get you into a CEO's chair was actually engineering (18%). Business and liberal arts were tied with either 15 or 16% each. Unless you're going to tell me that CEOs don't have anything to do with running MNCs, I'd suggest you reconsider your sweeping statements. ;) A non-exhaustive sampling of Social Sci CEOS...

Michael Eisner, CEO of Disney - a double major in English and theatre

Alan Lafley, President and CEO of Proctor & Gamble - major in history

Steve Case, CEO of America Online - major in political science

Michael Dell, founder and CEO of Dell Computer - a pre-med biology major (before dropping out of school entirely)

Jill Barad, CEO of Mattel - double major in psychology and english

John Loose, President and CEO of Corning Inc. - a degree in East Asian history

Steve Forbes, CEO of Forbes Inc. - major in American history

"The liberal arts degree is the best degree for a career in business."
-- Nick Burkholder, Assistant VP of Corporate Staffing, Cigna Corporation, Philadelphia Inquirer, May 13, 1996
