7th Peregrine Global - SEAA International Case Competition 2023 & 5th Rhyllis Rae Oedekovan Student Leadership Trophy!
The 2020-30 decade promises to be most significant years in the modern age that would define the future of Humanity. The technology revolution taking place led by AI and Machine Learning seem to be unparalleled and highly disruptive which the modern world has not seen. The Language management tools like ChatGPT has already proved the power of disruption in hardly less than the year of its introduction. There are a huge number of productivity tools are being developed around the world which can be employed in a range of industry and services.
'AI has the potential for civilizational destruction" so says the Guru of AI who has one of the biggest stake in developing this technology, Elon Musk of Tesla fame.
By freeing man to think and creating new wealth of astronomical proportions the new technology tools is redefining not just technology use but also the way the society is responding. With increased wealth and ironically more unemployment, the challenge would be to ensure redistributive justice so that the prosperity is not garnered by a few but enjoyed by all. With machines doing most the task in manufacturing and service industry the word productivity needs to be redefined.
The B-school curriculum and pedagogy is tuned to the older version of the industry and services while the newer version is completely different and in many ways still evolving. B-schools still have opportunity to realign their offering suited to the emerging challenges while at the same time take advantage of the evolving nature of the industry to redefine its own curriculum.
The International Accreditation agencies for their part have been reacting positively in redefining their own assessment methods and constantly updating and releasing standards and principals suited to the new reality. Social impact assessment is the new tool which most of the accreditation systems are adapting. Both the UN Global compact Network and the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) for their part have been pushing the socially impactful practices to the fore which is helping the b-schools among other Higher Educational Institutions to adopt the socially impactful strategies in their working.
We thought it is time that Business Schools and students assessed the real impact of Business Education resulting in a MBA degree.
