In Ceaușescu's time and for many years after the 1989 Revolution, people with the best grades and results were considered THE best. In theory, they would get the best jobs upon graduation and even higher salaries. In a society where predictability and production are key factors, the ones which have the best grades will stand out. What happens when production is no longer a problem and you need innovation? The real problem is not that the ones with high grades are not able to design new products and services, but rather that they managed to specialize in one field only. This hyper-specialization turns from advantage to limitation. To have a true innovative thinking, you need to hold knowledge from several fields, not just development, as is the case for most of us. This trend can be seen in education, where the STEM concept (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) is gaining traction.
