A B School Bound To Sensitize Managers
Boston College is putting social issues on its MBA curriculum. In August, incoming graduate students at BC's Carroll School of Management will spend two daysfocusing on such issues as poverty, race, and the environment.
Second-year MBA students also will be required to spend two hours a week with an inner-city student "tutoring, advising, and relationship-building." Says Carroll School Dean Louis Corsini: "B-schools have to produce sensitized managers capable of helping the nation's schools, neighborhoods, and cities."
