In Ivan Misner's Three Big Lies About Networking, he saves his strongest point for last. Networking and building social capital haven't been taught in business, law and other professional schools, because the majority of the faculty have never run businesses.  He writes: "I think it's because most are made up of professors who've never owned a business. Almost everything they know about running a business they learned from books and consulting."

I hope that this changes soon, but knowing the hoops that academics must jump through to get to Tenure (or get to employment), I am not optimistic.
