Thought-leaders usher in a new learning program at BSL

Business leaders today, need to think systemically, strategically and beyond the traditional boundaries of organisations, and a siloed approach to teaching business makes little, to no sense. This is why BSL is building the 21st Century Business School, where all disciplines are encapsulated in business study to ensure a well-rounded education and understanding of the business arena. In pursuit of this, we have assembled a group of prominent thought-leaders in separate fields to prototype an innovative learning experience that brings economics, leadership, new system thinking and business paradigms together under one curriculum – especially for our MBA students.

Inspired by the 50+20 vision, Kate Raworth (economics), Christian Felber (Business), Ulrich Goluke and Arash Golnam (New System Thinking), Kim Polman and Katrin Muff (New Leadership) will help bring this new concept of learning to life. Each of these esteemed thought-leaders and academics are doing incredibly impressive work both independently and collectively and we are very excited to have them part of this program.

The intention for this collaboration is to create one paradigm-shifting learning week, hosted by our thought-leaders, for each of the four semesters, which will help frame the context for learning any other business discipline or function be it anything from HR to strategy to finance to marketing. This holistic way of thinking will provide students the opportunity to shape future decision-making challenges from a completely integrated perspective.

On 20th February, our thought-leaders will all convene at BSL to consolidate the learning plan and marry out the commitment of disrupting business education through the co-creation of this cutting-edge program for the business school community. We will be documenting the entire process and hosting interviews of all participants to discuss their role in building the syllabus for their respective learning weeks. Students will have the opportunity to meet with these thought-leaders on the day, as it will be during a Gapframe Week.

This initiative has the full support of important networks of business education from the UNPRME to the AACSB accreditation network. We’re both excited and proud to be part of a program for pioneering a new era in business education and will share more about each week’s learning content post the session on 20th February.
