    Hi

    These are from mental_floss. They're $14.95 and the link will tell you all about what's inside the MBA box, including the "Captains of Industry" trading cards.

    Can't wait to see what the Med. School one has inside! Perhaps a "Swiss Army" style multi-surgical instrument, a mini-cadaver and Chronic Ailment trading cards?

    About the Med. School Box...

    Hi

    I couldn't resist looking up the Med. School box. (At 68, I'm sure this is the only Med. School on the planet, to which I could gain admission!)

    The trading cards are "Heroes of Medicine" starting with Hippocrates. Your diploma (enclosed) is from "Schola Medicinae in Cista" - Latin for "Medical School in a Box," naturally.

    Useful info in these boxes and, of course, no encouragement to go and practice law or medicine. The MBA? Well, there are lots of people who have succeeded in business without degrees -- and had no need of a professional licence. Who knows...:shysmile:
