In a global marketplace with around 150 EQUIS- and EPAS-accredited business schools offering MBAs and thousands of other MBA programmes, differentiation is a challenge.
For Britain’s Ashridge Business School this came into sharp focus when a 2009 internal quality review concluded controversially that its MBA had been innovative and was excellent but was probably notright for the future. The response was a major strategic review leading to new integrated full-time and part-time MBA programmes, which started in September 2012. This article shares our experience in rethinking the Ashridge MBA and the challenges we and others faced in making it happen.
