The business school balloon slowly deflates

I can’t help but feel that there is a dulling of education as universities and business schools push more and more students in front of fewer and fewer teachers and treat PowerPoint as some kind of baby sitting tool. “If I show them enough ppts and entertain them with stories…my student evals will go through the roof….and my job will be safe”.

But will the system be safe? Is there learning going on and if not, how soon before the customers realise and then choose to spend their money elsewhere?

It’s not so much ‘death by PowerPoint’ as much as it is a slow water torture while awaiting graduation in 3, 4 or 5 years.

Has learning become secondary to accreditation and P&L statements and if so, then what is it really worth?

Is it too late to change it or is Peter Thiel right and it is simply the next asset bubble waiting to burst?
