Facing the Future of GME
Liaison’s BusinessCAS Research Director Stephen Taylor is hosting an ongoing series of unscripted conversations with graduate management education (GME) leaders from a variety of higher ed institutions, associations and publications. During these sessions, he and his guests discuss the latest trends and most important topics in the world of GME today. His first guest was John Byrne, Editor-in-Chief of Poets&Quants.
“GME Perspectives: A Conversation with John Byrne” is now available for on-demand viewing, listening or reading. In addition to his work at the helm of Poets&Quants, John is the author or co-author of more than ten books, including two New York Times bestsellers. Many know him as the former Executive Editor of BusinessWeek, Editor-in-Chief of Fast Company and the creator of the first regularly published rankings of business schools. He is widely considered among the leading thinkers when it comes to the world of business schools; when we conducted a focus group with GME deans earlier this year, he was cited as one of the primary sources they relied upon for news in the field.
He and Stephen shared their thoughts regarding:
- How business schools are changing in the wake of the pandemic.
- What we should consider when we look at popular business school rankings.
- How to advocate for the value of an MBA in today’s world.
