There has been a change in what 'ambitious' people do. They now go into finance

and sales. MBA schools teach people how to attack everyone around them to make a profit, including their customers, government and shareholders. And the GOP wants fewer people to study the humanities and studying sciences doesn't seem to give people a voice outside of science issues. No wonder morals have gone down the tubes. Our best and our brightest are being co opted. People are spending less time actually thinking about bettering humanity and more time thinking how to make a buck for their corporation.... and it shows. The earth's thinking has actually been changed.

1. I wouldn't call it "successful" people...but am not sure of the correct adjective.

But you are right - when I was in college, the thing to do was to go into science, arts, humanities - it wasn't all about money. I don't know what happened, but greed surfaced.....and it is a tragedy.

2. I know lots of people that got undergrad degrees in engineering and science

that got their MBA because that is where the $$ was suppose to be.
