What changes are affecting business education today? How are business schools responding to challenges and opportunities of the contemporary environment? We asked six business school leaders to share their thoughts with our readers. Each is a distinguished business educator and leader. They represent six world-class business schools and varying geographies – Europe, U.S., and Australia.

We provide their perspectives in response to the following questions: (1) What are the pressing issues in business education today? (2) What are inadequacies in business school research? (3) What strategic initiatives are you pursuing in your own institution. They were also invited to offer additional thoughts.

You will find these perspectives to be thoughtful, forward-looking, and compelling. Collectively, they give us assurance that creative and proactive responses are in place in response to the remarkable challenges of the day. Enjoy and feel free to share with your colleagues.
