Business Education in the Digital World: Reducing the Distance
Discussions of innovative technologies in management education rarely go beyond remote and e-learning. In fact, the need for digital transformation of business schools and universities is much wider. All processes, from attracting prospective university students to interaction with university graduates, do require the use of appropriate technologies. Business schools face many challenges during the implementation of various technologies. If these challenges remain unresolved, digital technology could threaten the quality of education, instead of improving it.
Issues for Discussion
- What is the comprehensive approach to the digital transformation of business schools?
- Does aggressive marketing lower the confidence of enrollees in remote learning?
- When will Big Data benefit education?
- Is it permissible to conduct examinations remotely?
- Can we trust digital diplomas?
- How can business schools remain in touch with their graduates using current technologies?
