Wed, 2017-01-18 11:08

Business Schools Redesigned to Improve Learning

Wed, 2017-01-18 10:28

Form follows function.  The philosophy that drives nature also drives business school re-design, especially in Canada.  The focus?  Creating student community.  Why the push? Business schools recognize that the sprawling university model doesn’t reflect the 21st-century business model of community, collaboration, and innovation.  Instead, they reflect insular and disjointed approaches.  Many current business schools send students to classes on one part of campus, career services in a far flung corner, and student groups sprinkled about.
