Professor Dr. Christoph Loch, Cambridge Judge Business School
Bärbel Schwertfeger is providing the German business education scene a great service with her blog: the MBA is a very important educational pathway worldwide, but it is insufficiently understood in Germany. Moreover, MBA education, currently seen as somewhat “mature,” will undergo significant changes in the next decade, in a decentralized and experimental innovative evolution spread across many competing institutions. Bärbel Schwertfeger provides an overview of ongoing events and offers helpful commentary. This is worth following even from abroad.
