Fostering Integrative Thinking: Adapting the Executive Education Model to the MBA Program
Latham, Gary; Latham, Soosan D.; Whyte, Glen
Journal of Management Education, v28 n1 p3-18 2004
Many full-time MBA programs limit their effectiveness by clinging to functionalism. At best, they have made incremental changes to meet the market demand for MBA graduates. These changes, in most cases, have failed to integrate the various functional facets of complex business challenges. For insights into how to do so, many business schools need look no further than their own executive programs. Executive programs typically emphasize the synergistic use of core competencies and delivery systems in a way that enables one to truly master business administration.
