Welcome to the craft economy. It’s not just for beer anymore. While we’ve been taking a sneak peak at the landscape of higher education in “The Future of Learning” series, our last installment explores how the world of business is likely to shape learning. New strategic partnerships that delve into the needs of local businesses are preparing students to be successful in an economy that is based on ideas and innovation rather than scale and manufacturing. Our guest Dr. Sam Holloway of UP’s Pamplin School of Business talks about an emerging role for universities as a professional development resource for regional employers, enabling faculty to play a much longer role in people’s careers.
Business schools that really do well first look close to home and find out what’s going on around here and how can we help.
