Interview with James O’Toole on Business Schools and Business Ethics

July 2010 - By Dr. Nagendra V Chowdary

The faculties at prestigious b-schools (and their wannabes) are increasingly composed of discipline-oriented professors, researchers who see themselves as say, economists and psychologists, and who know (or care) little about the practical world of business organizations, or about teaching MBAs or about how to lead them.
– James O'Toole
