Amy Gutmann: As a president? Education is not a business. It’s a profession. It’s a calling. But I have to be very savvy as a businesswoman in running an institution who’s budget is 4.4 billion dollars a year, and whose endowment is now over six billion dollars a year. It’s the means to which the end of great education is directed. So I spend a good deal of my time and some of my concern making sure our health system is doing well financially. And I’m happy to say it’s doing fabulously well financially. And I don’t see it as a tradeoff between business and education. To put it very simply, business is a means to pursuing great ends.
