PLEDGE NOW
Business School Deans on the Future

Top business school deans weigh in on how they see the next frontier. Plus, we hear more about a federal judge’s ruling on “don’t ask, don’t tell.”

Left to right: Nitin Nohria of Harvard Business School; Sally Blount of Kellogg at Northwestern; Rich Lyons of Haas at UC-Berkeley.

American business schools – “B-schools” – got a checkered reputation in the last decade. Enron and Worldcom scandals had people asking what kind of ethics they were teaching. The crash of ’08 left people asking what kind of business they were teaching.

Now, a new generation of leaders is moving into top slots at the country’s top B-schools. We hear from the heads of Harvard Business School, Northwestern’s Kellogg School and Berkeley’s Haas School, on the US economy now – and their role.

Plus, we look ahead from the big new injunction on “don’t ask, don’t tell.”

-Tom Ashbrook

Guests:

Sally Blount, dean of the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.

Rich Lyons, dean of Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley.

Nitin Nohria, dean of Harvard Business School.

Closing segment:

A federal judge has told the U.S. military to stop enforcing its “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy for gay servicemembers. We hear about the implications.

John Schwartz, national legal correspondent for the New York Times.
