An MBA, the Facebook way?
Either that, or they're busy plugging away on their MBA.
Now, that would be a valid excuse because there's a school in England that's offering an MBA over the web. While that's nothing new, this one is earned specifically over Facebook.
Users, er, students, install the LSBF application on their account and take part in the course on their own schedule - not on the school's timetable.
How exactly does one earn their MBA while spending time on Facebook? The LSBF's Facebook app involves online discussions, video lectures and readings, among other activities.
If you're looking to save a couple bucks on a pricey degree - this is a wallet-friendly option. Tuition is a measly $23,000. By comparison, tuition at the University of Toronto's Rotman School of Management is about $75,000.
With the money you save, you could kick back and enjoy a pint with your classmates.
Well, you could - if they live near you. Given it's a Facebook-based education program, it might be easier to send them a digital poke than to have a toast.
And that's exactly something this program lacks, the face-to-face interaction that many say is so crucial to success not just in the program, but in the workforce afterwards.
Or maybe they're onto something: The school expects to attract 500,000 students within the first year.
Would you get a university education - or an MBA - over Facebook? Is the convenience better than the in-person school experience?
