Published in 2016, Reimagining Business Education discusses the rationale for, and design of, the ﬁrst Business Education Jam; reviews key challenges facing business education; and articulates a vision for how the role and delivery of business education could be reimagined. This book is critically important during a time when business schools, as an industry, struggle to identify the innovations necessary to meet the needs of a changing world. The Jam was a massive online brainstorm from September 30-October 2, 2014 with over 5,000 participants who sparked ideas, concepts, and collaborations on how to close the growing gap between industry and academia. A transformative event, it continues to make an impact as Deans, academics, and members of industry leverage its ﬁndings to inform practice. Reimagining Business Education takes this collaborative effort a step further to break down traditional educational models and structures to reimagine the future of business education in a more open and connected world.
From the back cover:
Reimagining Business Education is about listening to the voices of business education, making it required reading for anyone who believes, as I do, that business schools must and will transform, prosper, and make a profound and positive impact on business and society.
