Guy PfeffermannAre business schools imparting the skills employers need most?  In 2003, soon after GBSN was launched, one of the first things we did was question how companies/employers in developing countries rated local business school MBAs.

I was then working at the World Bank’s International Finance Corporation, and we leveraged IFC’s extensive network of developing world companies in order to find out. Looking back at the survey results, how do they compare with the most recent data?

Riding the Tide of Disruption in Higher Education

In an article posted on Dialogue Review, authors Dr. Mark Farrell and Dr. John Davis addressed the two main triggers of disruption in education: technological change and cost pressures. These disruptions are forcing universities (especially those deemed ‘non-elite’) across the world to evolve if they are to survive and thrive. 

To learn more about the inevitable disruption in higher education please consider attending our annual conference in Manila, Philippines, where Dr. Farrell will be presenting on this topic during a highly participatory plenary session, The Great Debate: Do the Bricks and Mortar Matter?
