Presentation

In the early 1970s, many heralded the evolution of business schools from vocational training centers to developers of scientific knowledge as a significant improvement. Forty-plus years later, we are re-thinking this education model, and the ideal balance between theory and practical application.

The drive is on to integrate businesses with business education, and to create a model in which businesses are co-producers of the talent that today’s workforce demands. Will this new partnership simply happen because the two groups fall in love? Dean Unnava will make the case why an arranged marriage may be necessary for both groups to thrive.
