The EFMD business magazine

Vol.11 Issue 03 – ’17
In this issue of Global Focus we celebrate 20 years of EQUIS, EFMD’s quality assurance programme, and look forward to the next two decades. In a detailed and wide-ranging essay, EFMD stalwarts Michael Osbaldeston and Ulrich Hommel analyse the philosophy underlying the EQUIS system and suggest how it will face up to the challengers of the future. Marianne Lewis advocates for a paradoxical leadership approach in business schools, acknowledging and navigating inherent tensions. Sriven Naidu discusses the need for collaborative leaders in a globally interconnected and resource-constrained world, whilst Mats Alvesson questions the efficacy of education in conferring wisdom and learning, highlighting potential shortcomings. Simon Mercado and Julie Perrin Halot explore strategies for effective international collaboration, balancing opportunities and challenges to add organisational value.
