Logo for Bridging the Gap Between Academic Theory and Real Life Situations
In this clip from the movie Back to School, a wealthy auto manufacturer interrupts his professor with colorful anecdotes that highlight the difference between learning business in school and doing business in the real world. The professor insists that students only need to learn theory, but the students are more interested in how to deal with corrupt politicians and organized labor.
