Working for Wimps? Bolt!

I do some teaching in an MBA program and in chatting with one of the students recently, he indicated that he had worked for two years before returning to school for his MBA. I asked why he resigned to get an MBA. He indicated it was always in his plans, but he originally thought he would work 4 or 5 years before going back to school. When asked why he bolted early, he cited the fact that he was working for a boss who just would not make decisions. Even worse, the boss’s boss was just as bad, and other entry level management folks found the same problems with their bosses.
