Abstract

The curriculum at many business schools is in a period of ferment as overhauls are contemplated for a variety of reasons. One of the most compelling needs is for integration across disciplines. The Dynamic Capabilities Framework, one of the dominant paradigms in management studies, can serve this unifying function by providing guidance for integrating the curriculum across disciplines and between theory and practice. Implementation along the lines proposed will give students more of what they want and improve the contribution of business schools to the conception and pursuit of managerial goals.

Keywords: Dynamic Capabilities, business schools, curriculum integration, functional silos
