FWIW, I don't think this is much of a thing anymore. The competence and effectiveness of the CSO are debatable, but they seem content to pretty much let you choose whatever path.

Certainly not in the actual way classes are taught. Profs do whatever version of socratic method they like (or not). There isn't some overarching institutional focus on teaching like Kellog B-school next door. I don't even know what that would look like. (What is a B-school class like?)
There are plenty of business-focused classes, but the closest thing I've taken was FedTax, and I haven't had any trouble filling my schedule.
