About the Authors
  • Facing questions about the status and legitimacy of business schools, many of the world's leading institutions are now experimenting with new business models. In The Business School of the Future, former president of International Institute for Management Development (IMD), Peter Lorange reveals how the era of virtual technology, and the shift away from conservatism in classical academic institutions, heralds the arrival of a new kind of accessible and scalable business school. Drawing on his expansive and expert experience as a professor, leader and founder of academic institutions across the US and Europe, Lorange discusses the pedagogical and bureaucratic aspects of education and includes five case studies of institutes practicing the cutting-edge approaches discussed in the book (CEIBS, IMD, Singapore Management University, IE Madrid and Hult). This guide to designing the business school of the future, incorporating industry innovations, will appeal to business school deans, educators, policymakers and commentators.

In this book he uses his extensive experience to gives us an exciting view on how business schools can transform themselves and remain relevant to society.'

    'Business schools have been one of the great success stories of the last fifty years and Peter Lorange has played a central role in this success as a world-leading academic, dean and industrialist. This book is a timely reminder that change happens to all sectors and business schools need to continue to adapt and reinvent themselves to remain relevant and fit for purpose in the next decade.'
