Out of the Classroom and Into the Street
Re: Srikant M. Datar & David A. Garvin
Harvard Business School professors Srikant Datar and David Garvin have set out to change the course of business education. With co-author Patrick G. Cullen, they interviewed corporate executives as well as B-school deans in researching and writing Rethinking the MBA: Business Education at a Crossroads (Harvard Business Press). They're looking to shift attitudes and curricula away from imparting knowledge and toward teaching problem-solving skills and exploring value systems.
