Students who undertake masters of business administration (MBA) degrees should have cultural aspects incorporated into their study, according to one expert.
Speaking to the Times, Stephan Chambers, MBA Programme Director at Oxford’s Said Business School, said business students should have a more rounded education.
He stated: “Business schools should be about how people think, argue and interact, as well as how effectively they apply models.”
Meanwhile, Dr Patricia Rees, the MBA Programme Director at Manchester Metropolitan University Business School, added that individuals who undertake MBAs at the institution experience cultural tours to places such as Beijing and Prague.
She said: “Deeper cultural insights serve to provide students with an edge.”
