Tillerson Says Trump Ban Is Vital Measure to Protect U.S.

Updated on

Politics can be a thorn in the side of companies and universities. Bill Boulding, dean of Duke’s Fuqua School of Business, thinks he can use it to build better leaders.

President Donald Trump signed a new executive order on travel Monday, scaling back an earlier one that temporarily banned people from seven Muslim-majority nations and ended up in legal limbo. Boulding, who leads the No. 3 full-time U.S. MBA program on Bloomberg Businessweek’s ranking, thinks such a ban could put American business schools at risk of losing foreign talent.
