Business School Professors Have to Transform into Movie Directors and Students Have to be made into Actors

Professors must think of themselves as experiential movie directors for a production of Global Business in the Networked Economy, orchestrating and coaching a multinational cast of actors through experiments – and stepping off of the stage for a broader purview.

 The classroom should be more akin to one big reality game that simulates a market or industry. It could imitate the lifecycle of a real firm with different stages running for an entire one- or two-year MBA program.

Script and direct large-scale complex simulations.
