In it, Ortalo-Magné writes about the challenges and opportunities facing business schools:

“At a time when the number of MBA candidates is falling, innovation in online technology is opening the door to new forms of learning experiences, offered at a price much lower — and a scale much greater — than in standard brick-and-mortar classrooms.

“Much of the disruption is focused on exploiting the multitude of new ways that overcome distance to enable people to deliver knowledge, collaborate, and learn — from anywhere, at any time. This new landscape not only poses a threat to many business programs, but also presents new opportunities. Success lies in optimizing how we source the delivery of knowledge, and re-inventing how we complement knowledge to inspire our graduates to join our communities of successful and grateful alumni.”
