How do management programs help shape global business leaders? How can business schools address the ‘skills crisis’ faced by companies today? Dr Balakrishna Grandhi (Dean – Global MBA & Master of Global Business and Professor of Marketing & Strategy, SP Jain School of Global Management) shares his views in The Hans India, a news portal.
In his article, Dr Grandhi emphasises the need for the business learning model to evolve and shares how MBA programs can help students develop a global mindset. “The educational fraternity has to evolve and understand the emerging business challenges by organising industry conclaves, surveying senior practitioners on a continuing basis, engaging with industry captains, senior alumni and other thought leaders across industries and geographies. These exercises help MBA programs equip students with a global mindset, ability to think critically, be able to lead teams, strategically analyse and use their skills to solve problems faced by companies real-time,” writes Dr Grandhi.
