What is EDUCATION if it is not about VALUES?


A few months back, I posted a Blog, highlighting the major shortcomings and failures of Business Schools and their ‘fancy’ and most-often, useless MBAs. Whilst, a few years earlier in another Blog Values, Ethics, and the Common Good in MBA rankings: Where are they? I had shed light on the tragedy and consequences of the values-less business education.

Today, I wish to continue with the same theme, by sharing an article by an authoritative observer and practitioner  of this very important subject.

Rana Foroohar is a Global Business Columnist and an Associate Editor at the Financial Times, based in New York. She is also CNN’s global economic analyst. In a recent book, Foroohar discusses, amongst other topics, the reasons behind the failure of  business education to provide informed and capable business leaders, able to lead good businesses.

I very much believe that the article that I am about to share with you, sums it all up pretty succinctly, debunking the myth of the so-called business education and the MBAs.
