Emerging trends such as the Fourth Industrial Revolution and Business Disruption Technologies will change the way businesses do things. Specialized skills and learning is needed for our managers to handle such changes. There is an ever-increasing expectations gap between career-oriented students and work-oriented employers. This forces business schools to offer employer specific customized courses and allowing workspace to be future classrooms. In the globalization context, mangers will have to balance between ‘local’ and ‘global’ views. Soft skills need to be complemented with social media and social networking skills. This paper uses descriptive content analysis method to identify some emerging trends that will influence our management education so that these institutions can make appropriate changes to make their students future ready.
