Media Rankings and the Challenge of Change in Management Education

Business Education, News from GBSN0 Comments

If you could change anything — anything at all — about your business school, what would it be? In one form or another, that basic question is placed before every business school leader. Whereas “nothing — nothing at all” might once have sufficed for the sake of continuity and tradition, it’s no longer viewed as an acceptable response.
