Leadership building for Digital Future - the B-school Challenge
Business education is experiencing fundamental changes in content, delivery & assessment. The pace of Edu-tech adoption got a sudden impetus owing to the unexpected occurrence of a global Pandemic. Everyone is innovating and so are the accreditation agencies to cope with the new normal. One thing is quite clear that Business education will never be the same. In continuing with the same theme and keeping in view the ongoing campaign for Digital Transformation of Business Education SEAA Trust, New Delhi is committed to we are launching our 14th International Accreditation Conference focusing on "Leadership building for the Digital future-the B-school challenge".
The global business leaders are convinced the technology is no longer the challenge but leadership definitely is. Increasingly the top business schools from around the world are under pressure to tweak their curriculum to ensure the passing out batches of student managers are going out equipped with high level of technology exposure and awareness about the challenges ahead. The traditional MBA curriculum is being replaced with a forward looking sylabbi that agile, adaptable and in line with the tectonic shift in business focus.
The challenges are many as much of the student cohort are from non-technology or traditional technology schools rooted in theory with little practice. And many among the faculty also are not trained or are not aware about the new technologies that are being invented almost on the fly. There is much learning to be done and the industry involvement in education is going to be much greater and not less in the future of Business Education. The old school MBA programmes have to be rewritten and made more practical and new tools with the help of the industry need to be crafted to hone the MBA graduates so that they would be able to face the challenges of the digitally transformed businesses.
In fact the greatest challenge is the uncertainty of the future as the technologies are only now maturating and the industry segments like Space, new urban transportation, ocean exploration, Block Chain technology led financial services, Internet based services, Cloud computing, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, 3 D Printing, Augmented Reality etc., are posing new challenges and opportunities.
