A new survey suggests that up to 90% of business students are 17-year-olds that don’t know what they’re doing.

The study is alleged to have been spearheaded by the unusually high dropout rate of first-year business students, which is said to be even higher than medicine and psychology.

According to local South Betoota Polytechnic business school professor, Mr Ian Dickinson, he sees up to 50% of students drop out after the first semester and cites that it’s “usually around the time they have to do data analytics and statistics.”

But considering the study load was nowhere near as strenuous as some of the tougher degrees, many tutors were left feeling perplexed that so many students were bottoming out.

It was when Dickinson prompted the course coordinators to send out a survey, that his suspicions were confirmed.

He chats with our reporter about his findings.

“I’ve always thought seventeen year old’s were a bit wishy-washy, but the problem is a bit deeper than that”, says Dickinson.

“It appears the majority of students have been forced to choose a degree by their parents and were likely not able to choose liberal arts.”

“In fact, I’d say the only reason business degrees even exist is so directionless school leavers can appease their parents.”

“Not much else use for them if I’m being honest.”

More to come.
