AS WE DIVE DEEPER into the Fourth Industrial Revolution, MBA programs need to prepare their students for a world of change, filled with new careers that might not even exist today. How are MBA programs rethinking and rebuilding their programs to meet the growing demand for ongoing, lifelong learning that will now be required by our new world of work? Can we take an evolutionary approach or will this require a more radical view to defining what an MBA is and how it should be delivered? MBA curriculum innovation has never been more important than it is today.
TOPICS UNDER CONSIDERATION INCLUDE:
Rethinking the MBA curriculum as a modular, personalized and potentially life-long experience
Evolution or revolution, adapting or enhancing – different approaches to curriculum change for MBA programs
Can we develop lifelong learners? What does that mean in terms of recruitment, admissions, student affairs, career services and alumni relations?
Meeting the increased market demand for new and refreshed skills-based education, along with demand for credentials and badges from students, alumni and industry
Taking a deep dive – going beyond the what to the why - through the increased use of experiential and unstructured experiences to create transformational learning for lifelong career success
Creating a lifelong learning model - what does that really mean to the curriculum, structure, delivery and culture of MBA Programs?
