The Future Of Business School

The Future Of Business School

Technology, demographics and finances are forcing business schools to rethink their mission. Kojo explores the challenges facing the traditional MBA program.

In the high-rolling '80s and early '90s, a master's degree in business administration was seen as the ticket to a lucrative career. In the recession-strapped economic landscape of today, it's less clear what an MBA gets you. With skyrocketing tuition and student debt, growing competition for international students and technology reshaping higher education, many business schools are rethinking their mission. Kojo explores the value of an MBA and how business schools are adapting to a changing world.
