Vol. 15 Issue 03 ’21
As discussions on synchronous versus asynchronous online teaching evolves beyond technicalities, Thomas Bieger and Samuel Heer explore their long-term impacts and question the strategy for business schools in the aftermath of COVID-19. Jordi Diaz and Daphne Halkias investigate how business schools can innovate to prepare and inspire future-focused leaders. Reflecting on EFMD Programme Accreditation workshops, Robert Galliers, Jens Petter Tøndel, and Barbara Sporn emphasise the importance of participants’ preparation, interaction, networking and honesty in learning from mistakes. Andrew Hoffman reflects on why he chose to be a scholar, “I want my research, teaching, and outreach to have a positive imprint on the world around me. Citation counts, A-level publications, and an h-index pale in comparison to that simple outcome”, and urges scholars to engage much more with the public. Simon Linacre questions the sustainability of business school rankings, whilst Vince-Wayne Mitchell, William S. Harvey, and Eric Knight ponder the scarcity of business school academics in mainstream media, urging for more effective thought leadership.
