Business courses vs Business magazines

I know the thread title is a bit funny, maybe even a bit provocative.

Even if I'm not trying to generalize, I somehow noticed that most of the things I learn in pure business subjects in my course (that means, those subjects without any mathematics or economic theory) are somehow not so different from what I might easily read on a business magazine, internet review or some other source without really needing to go to university.

Sometimes I have the impression that reading up-to-date magazines (BusinessWeek, Economist, Harvard Business Review) might be more useful than taking certain purely business-related subjects at university.

Maybe it's only my university that gives me this impression.

According to you what's the difference between reading business magazines (as a non-student) and taking business subjects at university?
