  • Center Faculty Director Featured in Financial Times

    Center Faculty Director and Rammrath Chair in International Business Jonathan Doh co-authored an article that appeared in the Financial Times, September 23. In the article, entitled “Innovative Partnerships Could Transform Education,” Doh and his co-author, Guy Pfefferman, chief executive of the Global Business School Network and previous chief economist for the International Finance Corporation, argue business schools should export high-quality online courses to students in the developing world. Universities and business schools are being hit by a technological revolution that is wreaking havoc on their traditional business models and generating “creative destruction” of a magnitude that would have awed the economist Joseph Schumpeter himself. Online learning – and in particular Moocs (Massive open online courses) – as well as increasingly universal access to portable computers, tablets, smartphones and other communication media – are revolutionizing the industry. In a nutshell, clients (students and parents) now have low or no-cost alternatives to increasingly expensive universities. read more
