Dean Hubbard of Columbia Business School, in yesterday´s article of the Financial Times, defends Management Education.

Dean Hubbard's article, while articulate on the macro level issues surrounding economic growth and productivity, tends to lack evidence and rigor in terms of linking business education to this success in the U.S. Futhermore he does not provide any real response to the main critics of the MBA who target the overly technical and narrow nature of many MBA programs that are tied to disciplines like finance that are highly specialized and offer limited opportunities for interdisciplinary thinking about management issues at the level of the firm. It would have been nice if Dean Hubbard had provided specific examples from his own school of how they insure that the focus is not on the first employment post MBA and the longer term potential of the individual to provide leadership.
