19 September 2016 – I see two opposite trends in the world around us: enormous exponential change on the one hand and on the other hand low innovation of Higher Education Business programs in the Netherlands. Because of the exponential changing environment Higher Educators should innovate their programs both on content and leadership development so business students are educated for this unforeseen future.
“The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching’s national study of undergraduate business education found that most undergraduate programs are too narrow, failing to challenge students to question assumptions, think creatively, or understand the place of business in larger institutional contexts.
Rethinking Undergraduate Business Education examines these limitations and describes the efforts of a diverse set of institutions to address them by integrating the best elements of liberal arts learning with business curriculum to help students develop wise, ethically grounded professional judgment.” (Colby et al, 2011)
Flow Impact Fund stimulates and funds the development of higher education programs that include sustainability and leadership development for undergraduates for the above goal.
