Abstract

What are business schools to do? For slightly more than a century, there has been a protracted debate about the business school in the university. We argue that business schools have a special responsibility to advance understanding of business context and how it evolves. In so doing the business school naturally establishes itself as both a legitimate academic unit of the university and as a purveyor of value to the constituencies it serves as a professional school.

Keywords: Business Schools, Universities, Innovation in Education
