10/2/14 The website posting looks at campus greening, innovative classes and crowdsourcing as tools for transforming the MBA experience
Now, more than ever, technological advancements and instantaneous global communications are transforming the world of business. Navigating the business landscape is no easy task- and is not becoming any easier- so managers, entrepreneurs, and fresh college graduates are enrolling in business school to develop or re-hash the skills to lead successful companies.
Successful companies today, and in the future realize the need to benefit society as a whole and engage in sustainable business practices. Future MBA is a website that re-imagines the business school experience, aiming to developing corporate leaders who understand and value social responsibility and sustainability.
For 100 days, the website posts one idea as to what the business school of the future will look like. The blog explores and reinvents various aspects of the traditional MBA, including curriculum, research, partnerships, and campus activities. It’s aim is to encourage discussion and ensure that MBAs become the solution, rather than the problem in society.
Future MBA is an inter-disciplinary, innovative, and collaborative program that functions as a sort of life-long membership. Such a school would focus on individual reflection and allow for customizable curriculum that cater to each student’s strengths and weaknesses. Relevant courses would also be developed via crowdsourcing, in which faculty and business leaders would collaborate to create the most stimulating courses possible.
