Greetings From Guy

Guy PfeffermannThe vast majority of good business schools are in the "developed world” – what the World Bank calls "high-income countries”. However, the fastest-growing demand for business education is in the "developing world”, where an increasing number of business schools and on-line education providers are struggling to meet that demand. The question often comes up at conferences and other discussions whether curricula and delivery mode existing in developed countries are appropriate to the developing world. To paraphrase Gertrud Stein, "is a business school a business school a business school?” or do business schools serve different needs in the two worlds. The same question arises for online business education providers.

Two sets of recent statistics shed light on the question, the first about curricular content, and the second about delivery modes.
