New year story ! 4 *!
In reaching for the stars,don’t our BS risk to lose their purpose?• Because of : – Rankings (national, international), – Accreditation (EQUIS, EPAS, AACSB), – Strong competition between BS,• Numerous BS focus mainly on A journal publications• This orientation may have several (bad?) consequences:
In reaching for the stars,don’t our BS risk to lose their purpose?• Resources for research and not pedagogy : the risk is forgetting the students• Focus on articles and – not on textbook s: in France we use textbooks translated from English … – not on cases• Segregation in institutions : those who publish and the others (exclusion process)
Reaching for the stars…..• What is our mission?• What is our strategy? Is it only to publish unread articles ? Is it to develop entrepreneurship? Is it to develop the economy? What is the real impact of our BS?
