How relevant are business schools for today's managers and companies? How can schools provide practical support for industry whilst maintaining standards of academic rigour in their research. Are business schools effective in managing the demands of students, government, business and the research sector?
The University of Warwick recently hosted a Future of Business School Forum which explored how the business school model needs to develop to meet the demands of the business and academic worlds. We invited two of the speakers, Professor Jone Pearce and Professor Ken Starkey, to discuss the future for business schools.
Professor Starkey is Professor of Management & Organisational Learning at Nottingham University Business School.
Professor Joan Pearce is Professor of Organization & Strategy at The Paul Merage School of Business, University of California, Irvine.
