Prof. to student: Get your s*** together

Bill Radke Feb 24, 2010


Bill Radke: And finally, an e-mail from a professor at NYU’s Stern School of Business to a frustrated student making the rounds. The student walked into class an hour late, and Professor Scott Galloway told him to get out.

The student e-mailed his umbrage . . . allow me to paraphrase the professor’s response. Getting and keeping a good job is really hard. Having respect and manners is pretty easy. Start by getting the easy stuff right. The entire email’s worth a read.
