Guy Visits Tunis in Advance of the GBSN Annual Conference in June
Greetings from Guy

Guy PfeffermannTen days ago I enjoyed watching a most stimulating GBSN webinar presentation by Andrew Crip’s (of about the future of business education. Published in conjunction with our partner organization, EFMD, the presentation was based on a survey of nearly 5,400 prospective students, current students, alumni and employers from 137 countries. The survey touched on a broad array of issues: the role of ethics in business education and the societal responsibility of business schools; their image in the media; perceptions of the role of schools and of the value of business education; internationalization; and the future impact of technology.

While the Carrington survey responses were normative – what respondents thought business schoolsshould be doing – webinar participants, mostly business school academics, had the opportunity to say what their respective business schools were actually doing.

I was struck by some of the responses.
