Highlights from this Segment

  • Technology will continue to provide many opportunities to reach distant audiences and make the best of the synchronous methodology; it is already changing the role of professors and the way knowledge is disseminated.
  • Management education is all-pervasive; all professions should have good management behind them. In time, management may be taught at primary and secondary schools, as it is a vital element of social life.
  • For business schools to expand across other sectors, they must become more embedded within their own institutions.
    • Other types of schools—medical schools and engineering schools—are producing really good ideas, but they need to have good management behind them in order best be implemented in society.
  • For management education to have greater influence on society, both schools and businesses need to celebrate and tell stories of success and impact.
