Business Schools: Role of Future Leaders

Leave a comment

From an article in the Financial Times by Thomas Gladwin and David Berdish:

Business schools need to think differently about preparing future leaders for a morally complex and sustainable future. In an interdependent world confronting growing environmental scarcity and human deprivation, we will need business leaders who can create social value without increasing energy and material throughput; who can cope with the complexity of interconnected social, ecological, economic systems; who can adapt in the face of uncertainty; who can bring about global change through collaborative and disruptive innovation and who can master multiple alternative futures.
