Online Programs Could Cut Number of Business Schools in Half

    All business schools that remain standing will need to adapt to the changing realities of the profession. Instead of traditional MBA concentrations such as finance, accounting, marketing and quantitative methods, the new sub majors that will be in demand are crisis management such as running projects in an industry like insurance where the law changes frequently (very frequently) and crony capitalism/lobbying. The old training based on concepts indebted to Adam Smith is not going to cut it anymore.

    The vast majority of MBA programs cater to the required degree market (usually government) where what you learn is absolutely unimportant. This combined with the Education Masters market will eventually disappear (as it should).

    Good riddance to business schools.
    Trivial and wishy washy bull.
    These courses are free of any serious content. They almost float in the air. Leadership, strategy, …. They produce graduates who invent nothing make nothing. They make their living skimming from the top.
