Duke’s Dean Sheppard On Reshaping Biz Ed.

Dean Blair Sheppard of Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business recently interviewed with McKinsey Quarterly editor Allen Webb about where MBA education stands in the wake of the financial crisis, and where he thinks it’s headed.

  • Meeting the expectations of today’s students
  • Business schools as interdisciplinary versus interscholastic
  • Humility and leadership
  • B-schools ten years from now
