1 min read

“Rethinking the MBA: Business Education at a Crossroads,” by Srikant M. Datar, the Arthur Lowes Dickinson Professor of Accounting, and David A. Garvin, the C. Roland Christensen Professor of Business Administration, both at Harvard Business School (HBS), along with former HBS research associate Patrick G. Cullen, has been named one of the best business books of 2010 by Strategy + Business magazine.

Based on extensive research, the book includes interviews with dozens of business school deans and executives and a detailed analysis of 11 top M.B.A programs.  According to the magazine’s award committee, the book is honored because “its conclusions, grounded in data and assembled coherently, present a clear, persuasive case for change in business school curricula — and because they are likely to be taken seriously in management academia.”
