Are traditional two-year MBA programs on the way out? Will online programs put an end to classroom-based study? What will the MBAs of the future learn? Where will they learn? And how?

BusinessBecause spoke to MBAs from some of the world’s top business schools who told us five ways business education will change in 2017.

Daniel Goez, an MBA student at Hult International Business School in Boston (pictured above, third from left), agrees. “Management is not something you learn in a formula,” he says. “It’s not something you read and apply what is said in a book. It’s very circumstantial and it depends on a lot of different factors.

“I believe that going forward people will look for shorter but also more practical programs.” Again, technology more than plays its part. “One of the first immersion exercises we did at Hult was using a software that simulates the real-world, puts you in the shoes of a CEO, and lets you test your decision making.”
