The Panama Papers concerning more than 200,000 offshore companies continue to create enough waves internationally that the whistleblower on the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca will, when identified, probably become known as the world’s leading “Information Patriot.”

Why it's time for business schools to radically rethink the MBA

Employers love business school graduates. That's not just a wild claim: 96% of employers globally polled by the Graduate Management Admission Council in January 2016 said that hiring such graduates creates value for their companies.

But that most-sought-after of business qualifications, the Master of Business Administration (MBA), is not above criticism. It has been accused by some of not meeting the needs of a changing market.
