MBA Scepticism II

It used to be the gods that determined the fate of men and women; now, at least in MBAs, it is the strategists.

For instance, Enron was one of the prime recruiters of MBA graduates from elite North American Business Schools, the organization fostered a competitive environment which encouraged strategists to cut corners and take risks. How are we to make sense of the role that Business Schools have played in this?
