Curriculum Matters: Toward More Holistic Graduate Management Education

Friday | June 21 | 2013 | 1:00 pm - 2:15 PM
Parksville, Level 3

Close examination of graduate management curricula shows marked imbalances between what employers say they need and the material that required courses address. Specifically, functional, quantitative, and analytical courses dominate curricula, while leadership, human capital management, and decision-making skills are underemphasized. The presenter will look at these underserved competencies and consider what schools can do, and are doing, to create a learning experience that meets broader needs. Discuss how to identify gaps in your school‘s curriculum and join the conversation about better ways to integrate these competencies in required and elective coursework.
