In this short 11 minute interview with McKinsey Quarterly, Blair Sheppard, dean of Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business explains how the Business Education is shaping globally. Highlights:
- Changing attitudes/interests of students - broadening horizons
- Need for a shift from the inter-disciplinary structure to an inter-scholastic structure
- Industry's need for humble leaders and how to create them
- Emergence of B Schools as truly global, more industry specific and a clear demarcation between the top notch schools and mediocre schools
NITIE - my alma-mater partially at least qualifies as futuristic in terms of having a deeply ingrained structure to develop humble leaders - students run the school in most dimensions and have an amazing exposure to team-work/ leadership while on campus!!
