There seems to be a lot of discussion lately about the value of a college education, and just how much responsibility a university has to prepare students for the workforce beyond providing skills in a narrowly focused major.
Whatever the answers to those questions are, it is a fact that most students don't receive a well-rounded education and are just not prepared to enter the job market after graduation.
Call me crazy, but I would think that universities would do anything they could to make sure their grads aren't a bunch of unemployable shmucks.

Anyway, MIT has started offering short courses in etiquette and, as someone who interviews a lot of recent grads, I can tell you: this is brilliant.
