MBA programmes typically accept the brightest minds into their programmes. These alumni then go on to create and work at some of the leading businesses around the world. How can a business school better capitalise on that energy and expertise to strengthen its own operations?
In the Future MBA the business school will engage the alumni in a range of online platforms where they will crowdsource ideas for a range of projects relating to the operations of the business school. This could be a new course that is being developed, new way of setting up the cafeteria on campus or even the search for a new building to buy to expand the campus. Alumni can get engaged in these different discussions, offer constructive points of view and eventually potential connection or even funding sources for projects. In this way the business school engages its community more fully in its day to day decisions, creating stronger connections and a stronger business school in the process.
