Tagged: business school professors
Harvard Business Review has a nice write up about the growing emphasis of professors spending time inside companies — as employees as opposed to outside consultants. We have always been a fan of professors with “real-world experience” and we believe it truly translates into better instruction. However, we’re not so sure how accurate an impression they are going to get of employee dynamics if they are only at the company for a short while or if they are even going to be treated the same as other employees given their stature as well as the stature of the “champion” who brought them in. We’re also not sure how an “insider” perspective could be effectively taught, particularly at a time when more and more MBA graduates are finding work as outside contractors and employers turn to MBAs (employees and contractors alike) for an outside perspective.
Best of luck with your applications!
