Useless Degrees Not Useless Anymore?

While looking for something else, I stumbled across this:
The MFA Is the New MBA

. . . An arts degree is now perhaps the hottest credential in the world of business. Corporate recruiters have begun visiting the top arts grad schools . . . in search of talent. And this broadened approach has often come at the expense of more tradtional business graduates. . . . With applications climbing and ever more arts grads occupying key corporate positions, the master of fine arts is becoming the new business degree.
According to the article, it is now more difficult to get into UCLA's MFA program than it is to get into Harvard Business School. Who could have imagined?
