  • Business schools deliver lifelong education

    Another reason applies specifically to business students, says Hugh Courtney, dean of the D’Amore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts. “Almost by definition, any student who received an MBA at any time in history didn’t get the optimal degree for himself or herself,” he says. Rather, students undoubtedly took courses that weren’t relevant to their specific goals at that specific time—or that were obsolete by the time they needed them in the workplace.

    “Successful businesspeople will need more business education than they ever have, and they’ll be retooling throughout their careers,” says Courtney. “The best way for schools to give them that education is to unbundle degrees and think about how to give students exactly what they need, when they need it, in the formats that work best for them.”
