Actually, you brought up the real question I had, but didn't ask: does the coursework translate outside the industry? Would somebody of your major find their experience useful in a different field, do you think? That said "the value of the program is the connections" is a perfectly valid answer. Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions! Oh, one more: When you entered the workforce, were you trained in sales there, or was it more of a "sink or swim" type situation where either you had it or you didn't?
