I’m really not that nitpicky (OK, yes I am), but it’s been driving me crazy for a long time. The electronic billboard message for the UConn School of Business MBA programs.
The same message is on the school’s web site.
If they’re talking about going to work somewhere far away from Connecticut, good for them.
But I suspect they’re talking about taking one’s career further, as in “up the corporate ladder.”
Maybe they should have touched base with some folks in the Neag School of Education. I’ll bet they could have found a grammar expert or two there.
