VLS with Professors Srikant Datar & David Garvin

Rethinking the MBA" – For decades, MBA graduates from top-tier schools set the standard for cutting-edge business knowledge and skills. Now the business world has changed, say Professor Datar and Professor Garvin – and MBA programs must change with it.   They believe that MBA programs aren't giving students the heightened cultural awareness and global perspectives they need. Newly minted MBAs lack essential leadership skills. Creative and critical thinking demand far more attention.  Professors Datar and Garvin will demonstrate how leading MBA programs, including HBS,  have begun reinventing themselves for the better – and will offer ideas for how business schools can surmount the growing challenges in today’s business world.
