Why did so few sign “The M.B.A. Oath”?

In Harvard Business School’s current graduating class, the New York Times reported that about one in five of its members penned their signatures on “The M.B.A. Oath,” which the Times stated is “a voluntary student-led pledge that the goal of a business manager is to ‘serve the greater good.’ ” Unfortunately, the reporter who wrote the story missed the bigger issue: Almost 80% of the graduating class did not “The M.B.A. Oath.”

I would much rather have learned why the majority did not sign it than why the minority did.
