Higher Education [Discussion Series]
The goal of higher education should be to champion the airing of all honest viewpoints. Nothing less is acceptable.
Higher education institutions, despite popular perceptions to the contrary, do not exist in splendid isolation from the societies in which they are located. They reflect, reproduce, and to some extent, shape the social, cultural, economic and political values and relations that are characteristic of the broader society. This results in and gives rise to a range of issues that are inherent in differing interpretations of the social and economic trajectory of a given society.
HIGHER EDUCATION IN THE 21st CENTURY
In recent times, higher education in general and management education in particular, have entered a period of profound transition driven by globalisation, technology, demographics and pressing social imperatives. There is little doubt that the demand for management education will continue to grow and that that the future does indeed hold exciting opportunities.
However, several issues are of major concern for business schools.
Although there are no easy answers to these questions, the challenges embedded within them are not insurmountable. Most importantly, we must attempt to react quickly to these emerging imperatives.
