The Graduate Management Admissions Council (GMAC), which owns and administers the GMAT exam, has commissioned a new book examining challenges confronting graduate management education, from technological advancements and globalization to how to measure program quality other than through rankings.
Disrupt or Be Disrupted: A Blueprint for Change in Management Education, out this month, contains contributions from leading academics and thinkers such as Harvard Business School Professor Rakesh Khurana and Former INSEAD Dean Dipak Jain on how to reimagine curriculum content and delivery, student engagement, faculty development and more.
In what it calls an evidence-based approach to improving graduate management education, GMAC has drawn on faculty from some of the world’s leading business schools to contribute chapters on topics ranging from how schools can develop new strategies to fit their own unique strengths to how changes in curriculum can help create a more holistic graduate management education overall. Additional contributors include London Business School Professor Michael Hay, McDonough School of Business Associate Professor Brooks Holtom and China Europe International Business School Professor George Yip, among many others.
“We commissioned this book to bring together an accomplished roster of contributors to spark and then lead the discussion and provide new insights and new ideas,” GMAC President and CEO Dave Wilson said in a statement. “We hope that this will be an important contribution to the debate at a crucial time in the history of business education,” he continued.
