Is a MFA better than an MBA?



According to Daniel Pink it is! In his book A Whole New Mind, Why Right-brainers Will Rule the Future, he speaks about how left brain skills are continuing to be outsourced while the right brain skills are becoming more and more sought after. Want an example? A North London football club has its own poet in residence.

Here are the three questions that he suggests we ask ourselves and our organizations:

1. Can someone overseas do it cheaper?
2. Can a computer do it faster?
3. Is what I'm offering in demand in an age of abundance?

He says that if your answer to 1 or 2 is yes or your answer to 3 is no, then their's deep trouble up ahead.

His book has opened the door on so much for me personally, I highly recommend it.
