Summary:The present dire economic environment has greatly affected business and the opportunities for advancement or even holding a job. Even universities, although not directly in business, are feeling the impact of diminishing endowments, resulting in lower disposable funds and reduction in innovative, unproven programs, which, in the past, often led to breakthroughs.
