After almost two years of crisis adaptation, business schools figured out their way towards the best approaches for a stronger and better future in business education. By adopting new educational technologies and successfully developing flexible delivery formats, business schools were able to train students and recruit professionals both online and offline.
The need for transformational leaders is revealing the business education approaches in 2022.
Refining Hybrid Business Education
Business schools experimented with a variety of digital technologies and methods to make remote instruction possible for teachers and students as a result of the pandemic. They also recognized how crucial face-to-face relationships with teachers and amongst students are, how much campus life delivers, and how rewarding it is at the end. However, after trials and errors, business schools were able to develop and master hybrid teaching models that will serve as a prototype for any future challenges, also known as the ‘NEOPedagogy model‘ that blends face-to-face learning with online learning if needed.
Interdisciplinary Education to Create Transformational Leaders
From a business market point of view, CEOs from a variety of industries are reconsidering their strategies to address the growing socio-economic and environmental concerns posed by climate change and Covid, ultimately leading to a higher demand for responsible data releases, impact investments, sustainable finance products, and green strategy creation has increased dramatically.
Talented leaders like this are in high demand all across the world. To build transformative leaders, business and management instructors must devise long-term, well-thought-out plans as they are emerging as a new source of societal effect.
Being Mindful of The Environment
While giving students an international academic experience will remain a priority, one of the educational approaches business schools are undertaking is how they’re rethinking taking their environmental impact.
Whether it’s paying better attention to their carbon footprint, or working towards a sustainable campus, business education is also taking into consideration graduating ethical business leaders who are mindful of their surroundings and community and work towards climate-friendly goals through purposeful projects.
For instance, and with higher environmental quality and an innovative ecosystem, Devinci Higher Education‘s new campus will allow students from all four schools ( 2023-2024) to learn and grow in an innovation and knowledge hybridization ecosystem thanks to the building design that promotes collaborative work, the very essence of all three schools (EMLV, ESILV, IIM) and the continuing education institute (ILV).
The campus building will incorporate bioclimatic devices to reduce energy consumption and its design guarantees overall performance meeting the strictest environmental standards. It was also designed and built in accordance with the BDF (Ile-de-France Sustainable Building) certification approach.
Business Education and Curriculum Auditing
A big step towards ensuring that business graduates can meet the world’s most pressing challenges.
In the coming year, employers and graduates will be looking for significant improvements in business management education. Many business schools have avoided making significant curricular changes. Nonetheless, given the seriousness of today’s societal concerns, business schools will be forced to react to pressures from all parts of industry and society.
EMLV’s mission is to drive innovation in teaching and research, to provide a global and responsible mindset and multidisciplinary skills that address the challenges for sustainable business and digital environments.
Chase your future with an interdisciplinary education and become the transformational leader of tomorrow.
