As Wall Street Shudders, Business Schools Rethink Curricula
Schmidt, Peter
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n6 pA11 Oct 2008
Investors were hardly the only ones shaken by the tumult in the financial markets this month. Business schools suddenly found themselves struggling to make sense of events on Wall Street, with some critics blaming an ethically challenged curriculum for the troubles. Current and prospective students, meanwhile, worried about job prospects. On business-school campuses, some experts in business education were even calling for business schools to rethink what and how they teach students, suggesting that the blame for the financial crisis may lie partly with instruction in flawed accounting procedures or a failure to teach business students to behave ethically. This article describes how business schools are rethinking their curricula in response to the current financial crisis.
