How can business schools remain relevant?

By Elie Chachoua – in World Economic Forum AGENDA

“When circumstances change, doing the same thing is a bad strategy.” It is with these words that Johan Roos, professor of strategy, managing director and dean of the Jönköping Business School in Sweden, opens the conversation on the future of business education.

And circumstances have changed indeed. In the wake of the Enron and financial crises, business schools are no longer shielded from the consequences of actions taken by executives they have trained – the number of MBAs from top business schools going into finance dropped by nearly one-third between 2007 and 2013, for example.
