Who Will Keep Business Schools in Business?
“Predicting the future of business schools is like consulting the oracle,” writes senior partner Lucy Leske for BizEd Magazine. The uncertainly lies in flat or declining enrollments, an MBA-saturated workforce, and questions from employers about the value of differing degrees in today’s marketplace.
Uncertainty means that business school leaders must be creative and visionary, Leske notes, with the ability to think broadly, boldly, and innovatively; run cross-disciplinary institutions; be managers and academics; and to be entrepreneurs. She quotes key business school leaders as support.
