How to Become Uniting Leaders within the Business-State-Society Cooperation?
The formation of modern innovative management knowledge is where leading business schools have achieved success. Meanwhile, they learn to channel their knowledge and skills to improve business practices; to develop legislation; to support social initiatives useful and applicable for business, public administration and society.
The future success of business schools in the modern world largely depends on how effectively they can act as unifying leaders.
There are numerous examples of how the unifying efforts of the business schools form the ground for positive changes, initiate a transformation of the university management system, improve the regional and national educational environment, introduce new quality standards, and set examples of social responsibility and multifunctional management approaches. All this brings tangible results, contributing to the development of business, state and society.
