MBA'S, ANGELS OR DEMONS?
How guilty are the business schools of the current crisis?
” The schools need a deep reflection on his mission, contribution and identity. ” Drew Gilpin Faust, president of Harvard's University
” Juanma Roca penetrates with this book into the crucial paper of the business schools into company. It does it from a critical, biting, incisive perspective, but with a proposal purpose. At the back of the debate there lies what I formulate as the fundamental dilemma: the business schools are to 'reproduce” the dominant business culture or to challenge and improve it. And, like that, to obtain an improvement of the culture and managerial practices that reach more to the set of the company. ” Carlos Losada, general manager of ESADE
” I am charmed with the title of the book! That one is the question. The economic world crisis has not been caused only by the MBA or by the business schools, but these have failed. ” Max Anderson, impeller of the Hippocratic oath of the MBA
” The act of contrition of the business schools seems to be small in comparison with the magnitude of the offense. To reduce the distrust of the people, the schools need to show that they value what the company is valued ” Joel Podolny, dean of the corporate university of Apple and ex-dean of the Yale School of Management
