The results are in! Last night the red carpet was laid out for what has come to be known as the Oscars of Management Practice, the Thinkers50 Awards. The Thinkers50 organization is dedicated to scanning, ranking and sharing the best management ideas in the world – the ideas that are true game-changers and endeavor to solve the world’s most vexing problems. Thought leaders from around the world – including a small cohort from Tuck – attended the gala event in London yesterday.
Earlier in the day, executive director Clark Callahan participated in a panel discussion moderated by Des Dearlove on the future of business education. Clark was joined by peers from Rotman School of Business and Columbia Business School, as well as the chosen top thought leader, Clay Christensen. We will share the highlights from this discussion in the near future, but here are the results as they relate to the Tuck faculty.
