Whilst researching for a couple of Financial Times workshops to be held in the Library this November, I stumbled across the Financial Times Business School which publishes several videos presented by Della Bradshaw, the Business Education Editor at the Financial Times. In this video, Della interviews Hamid Boucihki, Professor of Management and Entrepreneurship at Essec Ventures on the key challenges of business schools, such as fierce competition, accelerating technology, the threat of MOOCs, just-in-time education, for-profit colleges, online MBAs and the need for universities to re-invent the model such as workplace placements and providing first-class opportunities to enhance employability. This interview is one of a series discussing business education, and something which I found to be particularly interesting. After listening to the video series, the key question facing a prospective student is what will the return on their investment is going to be should they enrol on a business course, while companies are looking for global leadership.
