Towards business school 2.0 : online models for management education

Villarroel, Andrei (School of Management Fribourg, HES-SO // University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland)

A panel of highly renowned leaders of change in the emergent field of “onlin e management education” invited thoughts about the structure and dynamics surrounding a new generation of higher education organizations that transcend geographic, social, and economic boundaries in radical ways. The panel brings different stakeholder perspectives of this emergent ecosystem (from small and large education institutions, and fro m across many countries), and offers unique insights from initiatives that challenge the status - quo. As a result, a series of interactive discussions offers a multi - faceted perspective around the “Busi ness School 2.0” concept. The p anelists unveil ed their perspectives around this concept, and altogether we sought to converge on a set of propositions on the new opportunities (academic, economic, social, technical) for management education relative to the solely campus - based business school. The panelists built on their complementary experiences to engage the PDW participants from their own perspective on the “new sources of value” (and corresponding challenges) in the emergent ecosystem associated with the concept. Our PDW brought to the Academy an informed intellectual exchange on the key success factors rooted in practice that should benefit our quest for better models for management education.
