management teaches you, among other things, how to be a leader, when they want a nation of followers.

that would make sense.

and then, i guess, since everyone is a follower, they will have to turn to the leader to tell them how to do everything - so you end up with leadership that has a hand in just about everything.

I think it has more to do with them being worried about the universities and students themselves than the particular courses.

No one said MBA's, they were referencing the article which reads:
Quote:
The list includes law, philosophy, management, psychology, political science and the two subjects that appear to cause the most concern among Iran's conservative leadership ó women's studies and human rights.

Even so, you do realize the A in MBA stands for Administration, right?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Administration_(business)
Quote:
In business, administration consists of the performance or management of business operations and thus the making or implementing of a major decision. Administration can be defined as the universal process of organizing people and resources efficiently so as to direct activities toward common goals and objectives.


So uh yeah...management.

Abolfazl Hassani, head of Education Development at the Ministry of Education, told reporters today that the fields of "law, human rights, women's studies, economics, sociology, media, political science, philosophy, psychology, education, administration as well as cultural and artistic administration" are under review. He added some will be reviewed by the end of the year and others by the end of summer.
