MBA News: Debate on “How To Fix Business Schools” Continues at the Harvard Business Review

At mbaMission, we have been following the debate on “How to Fix Business Schools” hosted by the Harvard Business Review. This week, Lynda Gratton of London Business School writes that “Students Will Change the B-Schools” and suggests that a new model of leadership is at play, in part due to the Obama phenomenon:

“The current de-legitimisation of macho leadership and the more collaborative role model provided by Barak Obama has changed the language of business and leadership. This is a decisive shift, though no one knows how long it will last. But given the change of social mood and direction, we can certainly expect a new breed of student—and a new kind of curriculum will certainly need to accommodate it.”
