Greetings From Guy

Guy PfeffermannLast November I asked: Can business education improve health systems? 

I answered in the affirmative. High-quality management schools, such as members of GBSN, are equipped to foster innovation, especially in raising the capacity of systems to absorb advances in technology. They are able to generate drivers of change and to promote strategic thinking and planning. Business schools emphasize teamwork, critical thinking, and student-centered approaches to learning. They enjoy flexibility in adapting curricula to “real world problems," notably through the use of tailor-made local teaching cases. They embrace multi-disciplinary approaches, and their emphasis is on praxis rather than theory.
