Are business schools relevant in an age of disruption?

After extensive interviews with leaders in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors, Ivey researchers from the Ian O. Ihnatowycz Institute for Leadership, the Pierre L. Morrissette Institute for Entrepreneurship, and the Centre for Building Sustainable Value are ready to share their findings on the implications of disruption on business schools and curriculum.

We will examine how business leaders across industries, geographies and demographics are thinking about and responding to disruption, and most pressingly, debate the implications for business schools in this new environment.
