THE EXECUTIVE AND EDUCATION.
RANDALL, CLARENCE B.
HIGHER EDUCATION HAS THREE OBJECTIVES--TO TEACH THE STUDENT ABOUT HIMSELF, TO PREPARE HIM TO LIVE A WORTHY LIFE, AND TO PREPARE HIM TO EARN A LIVING. TO MEET THESE GOALS, THE INDUSTRIAL EXECUTIVE'S SPECIALIZED TRAINING IS SUPERIMPOSED ON A BROAD GENERAL EDUCATION WHICH PROVIDES HIM WITH HIS MOST IMPORTANT SKILLS, THE ABILITIES TO SPEAK AND WRITE THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE WITH CLARITY AND FORCE AND TO COMMUNICATE IN ANOTHER LANGUAGE. GRADUATE TRAINING IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION IS DESIRABLE BUT NOT INDISPENSIBLE. TO INTRODUCE THE YOUNG MAN TO EVERY PHASE OF THE COMPANY'S OPERATION AND TO HELP HIM KNOW ITS PEOPLE, MOST CORPORATIONS OFFER IN-COMPANY TRAINING. THE EXECUTIVE MUST CONTINUE SELF-EDUCATION THROUGHOUT HIS LIFE THROUGH READING AND INVOLVEMENT IN COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES. MANY CORPORATIONS PROVIDE FORMAL STUDY PROGRAMS FOR MANAGEMENT IN COOPERATION WITH UNIVERSITIES. THE EXECUTIVE ALSO HAS A RESPONSIBILITY TO SUPPORT AND IMPROVE EDUCATION AT ALL LEVELS, PARTICULARLY IN HIS OWN COMMUNITY, AND TO HELP IN THE TRAINING OF FUTURE EXECUTIVES BY OCCASIONALLY LECTURING TO A COLLEGE CLASS AND ANSWERING STUDENTS' QUESTIONS. EDUCATION AND BUSINESS CANNOT BE SEPARATED. THIS DOCUMENT IS CHAPTER THREE IN THE EXECUTIVE IN TRANSITION, AVAILABLE FROM THE MCGRAW-HILL BOOK COMPANY, NEW YORK. (AJ)
