QUESTION TYPE: Necessary Assumption
CONCLUSION: Business school curricula should be developed by business executives and then taught by academics.
REASONING: Business school has been too theoretical and not practical enough.
ANALYSIS: The argument assumes that business executives could add value and it is also assumes that the academic professors could effectively teach the curriculum.
- This is pretty extreme. It’s only necessary that academics don’t have enough practical experience. They could have some.
- As with A, this is also pretty extreme. It’s only necessary that academics don’t deal with enough real situations.
- The stimulus actually assumes that academics are able to teach the curriculum. The conclusion says that academics should teach what business executives design.
- This would support the argument by showing how useless business schools have become. But it isn’t necessary. It’s only necessary that business schools aren’t responsive enough.
- CORRECT. If business executives don’t have any relevant knowledge to add then it’s not clear how they could improve the situation.
