What We’re Talking About
This year our steering committee focused largely on the synergies between humans and technology and what it means to use technology responsibly alongside contemplations about that it meant for a business school to act responsibly as an agent for change in their communities and societies at large. Instead of viewing business schools and institutions as passive receivers of change among agents of disruption, we were urged instead to re-imagine business schools as agents of disruption themselves, as actors with power to influence, to shape, to change. What does this power look like to different types of business schools and what can we learn from schools who have had to leverage unconventional demographics, resources, market needs? What does it mean to redefine management education and development outside of its conventional norms?
