Our working, evening M.B.A. program students found Albert Shapero's article "Are Business Schools Teaching Business?" (Speaking Out, January) amusing. Professor Shapero is not talking about our M.B.A. program, which is setting up small business support centers throughout the state; not about our faculty, which includes many former small businessmen; nor about our students, some of whom work in small business and some of whom attribute their entrepreneurial success to knowledge gained in our M.B.A. program.

Whose M.B.A. program is the professor describing? Undoubtedly the one he knows best -- at Ohio State University, where he teaches.
