Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BARCELONA, Spain - Jul 20, 2018 - Currently, most MBAs and Executive Programs are old fashioned. Top Universities and Business Schools are trying to sell the same program, but not much has changed for the past 10 years, just a fancy LMS and new topics to complement the old content. Putting on a cool outfit may give a good impression, but once naked, it’s easy to realize that nothing has changed. This is why Zigurat Business School is different.
When planning to do an MBA or an Executive program, everyone should know that content is more important than recognition.
Assuming most people choose content, they face the challenge of differentiating which program will provide the most advanced tools and techniques. In order to find out which program will provide the most up to date content, consider that the biggest institutes and universities are also the ones that must follow certain bureaucratic procedures, that do not move at the same speed, as it requires to keep up with the market and relevant content.
We should change our mindset, adopt new roles and increase our responsibilities.
Executive education must change
Leadership, Operational methods, Project Management and Financial awareness, are still important but new Innovative approaches must be added into the equation of businesses as a whole, such as:
AI, Automatization, IOT, Quantum Computing, Machine Learning, Blockchain Technologies…
New technologies can help businesses, however…
At the forefront of the Digital Revolution are also the Banks, Governments, and Associations. This is why it is important to be aware of what to adopt and when. Standards are important but choosing what is right will define drive how society operates in the future.
Business leaders need to be ethical and ready to choose the correct technology, not just for businesses and profit purposes, but also to improve what is happening around the world:
- Climate change and destruction of nature
- Large-scale conflicts and Wars
- Inequality (income, discrimination)
- Religious conflicts
- Government accountability, transparency and corruption
- Food and water security
- Lack of education
- Safety / security / well-being
- Lack of economic opportunity and unemployment
Everyone should be concerned about how to improve such matters, directly or indirectly, they affect everybody. Whether it’s an executive or not, education and improving how society operates is important. The future can be shaped by combining how new methodologies is used to create a better system, and digitalization can allow that to happen.
It would be a shame to just use digital transformation for business purposes. An MBA can provide more, and should provide more. Business Schools are responsible for designing an educational program that will give tools and capabilities to be prepare professionals for what is coming.
An MBA can provide more than management skills; it can open minds to new approaches, technological methods, and social duties. Therefore, it is everyone’s responsibility to join forces and work together by building a future that can improve all points covered above. Using new methodologies for a greater purpose will not only allow one to generate new projects but solve problems as well.
It’s time to look at the big picture.
Big changes start with small steps. Zigurat Business School creates programs that are current in content, but also solutions to any given problem for many sectors and industries. Future leaders must use the right tools, and create a network that can solve any given problem, may it be social or economic. Source :
