Future Trends

This webinar reviewed the scope and criteria of the Phase Three study to put the data results in context. Dr. Kurpiers also highlighted results that pointed to early signs that the “digital generations” are more accepting of credential models like badges and certificates and may prefer self-directed study regimes over prescribed ones.

Phase Three of a multi-year study sponsored by three commissioning organizations: AACSB, EMBACUNICON and prepared by Percept Research:

The study shed light on the evolving expectations and experiences of up-and-coming generations of professionals spanning “Generation Z” and “Millennials” (so-called “digital generations”).

Organizations are seeking new opportunities that the digital generations present for business schools. The study and webinar explored how schools can align their educational models and adopt effective strategies to meet the needs of the digital generations throughout their careers.
