What MBAs want

Encouraging interview with Blair Sheppard, dean of Duke Business School, about increasingly mature expectations of future execuitves [their MBAs!] Seems they are looking for broader perspectives, linking business issues to societal and environmental issues, and not thinking the answer is to junk existing institutions but to make them work better. Blair says this needs better integration between schools of Business, Environment and Policy. We are not starting in a good place – though he claims business schools are already ‘interdisciplinary’ [i.e. they have all the required subjects], that’s not actually the case because they lack the tools to integrate them, even if they have the desire to do so.
