Business Education and "Real Experience"

Business Education and "Real Experience" Suzy Welch pointed out that at many (probably most of them) schools business education is being taught by academics, who lack real-world experience at a management level. 'Most of them haven't managed a thing,' she added. 'They're sitting there talking to you about leadership and they've not led a person. Do you agree with Mrs Welch? What is your opinion? Can academics teach business with no real experience? Can theoretical academic papers provide real experience? Is this enough to prepare our students in the 21st century? What can business schools, in some places schools of management, do to achieve a combination of theory and real experience in order to create an enrich environment for the 21st century students of business and management? Join the debate.
