Creating Sustainable Leaders

An interesting article entitled “Multicultural Critical Theory. At B-School” appeared in the New York Times this week. The article reports that, although business schools were found “too vocational” as far back as 1959, they are only now starting to change curricula. “Many of the changes are moving business schools into territory more traditionally associated with the liberal arts: multidisciplinary approaches, an understanding of global and historical context and perspectives, a greater focus on leadership and social responsibility and . . . learning how to think critically.” John J. Fernandes, president of the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, predicts that in 10 years, 75 percent of schools will have made changes that focus on “the creation of more sustainable leaders.”

    Thank you Elizabeth! This provides me with some information to communicate to my students on the first day of the new semester.

  2. I am pleased to see changes are now happening. When I went to school the curriculum probably had not changed for fifty years. I for one am all for updating the learning materials. I can tell from my experiences that the real world is vastly different than what I was being taught at the time back in the late 60’s
