The new world is one of global possibility and convergence—yet, at the same time, one of increasing fragmentation and risk. We are witnesses to ongoing upheavals in political, social and economic arrangements that invariably challenge our western way of thinking and living. We live in a post-modern world that has shifted society’s grasp of what were once regarded as bed-rock certainties. But this world also offers the chance to think things through afresh and to find new ways to meet new challenges. Such matters of change and uncertainty, of continuity and discontinuity, of emerging prosperity and economic upheaval, also challenge business educators to think things through afresh as to whether their own mission and methods are appropriate to the times.
