Just the advertisement to make MBA students feel safe on campus

The master of business administration programme run out of City University may not be on the A-list of business schools, but if this advert is anything to go by, it's a lot more fun. Looks as if you get to use target practice as course credits. Well, not quite, but almost.

Programme graduate Priscilla Mui said being a shooter made her a better manager. If you are confused by her quote, IPSC stands for International Practical Shooting Confederation. Always use alphabet soup in place of plain language - that's probably something the programme teaches. Certainly killer instinct and sharpshooting skills could come in handy in the business world, and 'making a killing' has a whole different meaning at CityU. But it's just as well the CityU MBA doesn't have an international following. Imagine how people might react if they saw this advert in the US after so many campus shootings there!
