AACSB APAC: Tech Trends in the Curriculum
Is it possible to maximize the experience and tenure of the top business school faculty and practitioners in the classroom with the most advanced, cutting-edge technology in the curriculum and in the classroom?
Associate Professor Erika Fille T. Legara from the Asian Institute of Management’s Department of Analytics, Information and Operations and Associate Professor James Pang from the NUS Business School’s Master of Science in Business Analytics led right into the debate with answering the question about why tech trends are necessary to business schools. The opportunities for business schools to provide relevant skills necessary (and in demand) in the banking/finance industry, conglomerates, manufacturing, healthcare and the government sector. The skills that business schools can provide – from the point of curriculum development – position students to compete in the Fourth Industrial Revolution and ready for any range of challenges.
The AACSB International Asia Pacific Conference was held in Nagoya, Japan from Oct. 29 – 31 and was hosted at the NUCB Business School Nagoya Marunouchi Tower Campus. The city of Nagoya has long been the manufacturing heart of Japan and continues to experience explosive growth as a business hub for all of Japan. AACSB, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, is one of the three most respected and valued global accreditation bodies that signals the highest level of quality assurance to students, employers, and other business schools around the world. The NUCB Business School is only one of four schools in Japan with AACSB accreditation and the only one with AACSB and AMBA dual accreditation.
