Coronavirus pandemic forced business schools around the world to switch to online teaching quickly. But will this trend continue in the future? “There will be some return to previous practice, but this forced experiment will have a lasting effect,” says Jeremy Hutchison-Krupat, University Senior Lecturer in Innovation & Operations Management at Cambridge Judge Business School. “There is a realisation that online learning can be enjoyable, convenient and engaging. That doesn’t change when the coronavirus crisis passes.”
Mark Andrews, Digital Learning Programme Manager, said: “This situation has brought with it creativity in delivery design. It will have a lasting impact on the way we operate and think about delivery.”
Just what is “innovation” – and is there a dark side to this wave of change that has transformed our lives through technology and other breakthroughs? Cambridge Judge Business School faculty – Michael Kitson, Professor Sucheta Nadkarni, Simon Stockley and Dr Jeremy Hutchison-Krupat – discuss the definition of innovation, the role of platforms and connectivity, and the role of government in providing the right practical and legal framework.
Business schools are not only for consultants or bankers but also for people wanting to launch their own business, writes Seb Murray in Master in Management Guide. This could be a safe environment to test a business idea, according to Dr Jeremy Hutchison-Krupat, Co-Director of the Entrepreneurship Centre at Cambridge Judge. For example, on the MSt in Entrepreneurship programme students can attend events like pitching sessions as well as get a mentor based on their needs. This creates “an environment that facilitates the formation of a strong community of entrepreneurs,” says Jeremy.
