Developing Talent For The Global Marketplace

The field of management education has undergone profound changes in the past decade. Motivated by the financial crisis of 2008-09 the faculty, the students, and the public in general have started asking what should the mission of business schools be and how to develop the future managers and future leaders for an ever-changing world. The audit of business school curricula has gone well beyond the initial focus on ethics, leadership and responsibility. In this article, I want to address two key questions: "What are the skills that business school must develop in their students to ensure that they are prepared for the future?" and "How to achieve this?"

The Skills of the Future Managers and Leaders

How Do We Get There?

The future of management education is challenging and exciting. As we see global companies emerging from various corners of the world and their high aspirations to cater to a global community, we see the increasing need to develop future managers who are capable of working in different environments, who are harnessing diversity to promote creativity and entrepreneurialism. At the same time the continued shifts in technologies, consumer preferences, sources of competition implies that business schools need to develop the analytical skills of their participants so that they can be successful not only today and tomorrow but also be able to analyse and adapt to dynamics of the global marketplace twenty or thirty years from now.
