Day 59The skills taught in an MBA are ones that are important to anyone’s career, regardless of the kind of educational background you have. Whether you have trained as a doctor, an engineer, an artist or an even an athlete, these skills can be extremely useful in these respective careers.

With this in mind, the Future MBA may no longer be a one or two year programme but rather a shorter programme which is done at the end of other Masters degree programmes. Once a student finishes their Masters level studies in Economics, English literature or Architecture for example, they then have access to a short, interdisciplinary MBA programme where they learn the leadership, entrepreneurship and of course sustainability related skills that they can then apply in their respective fields. In this way all graduates will be better prepared to make meaningful contributions in their disciplines and managers going into the business sector will have a variety of specialized backgrounds that will be of use in the increasingly connected business environment.
