With China in Mind

As someone who is always on the go and ready to spread education around the world, Santiago Iniguez, Vice-Chairman of the FT|IE Corporate Alliance (the FT|IE CLA), says that in-company management education is, and will continue to be, the fastest growing sector in business education. Here he examines key global trends, such as ageing populations and the extension of the retirement age, and what the leading executive education drivers will be in the coming years. It goes without saying that he does all that with China in mind.
P.S. In December 2014 the Financial Times and IE Business School launched the FT|IE Corporate Learning Alliance (FT|IE CLA), a new joint venture providing premium custom learning for business leaders.

A Chinese Version

IE Business School Dean, Sanitiago Iniguez, is always on the go, ready to spread education around the world. As a matter of fact some call Dean Iniguez: the globe-trotter Dean!!! Not so long ago he was in China to present the Chinese version of his book “The Learning Curve.”

Here he talks about how globalization has to deal simultaneously with global and local driving forces, using Shanghai’s skyline to illustrate how these forces are interwoven.

He also says that good managers are only made over time. Don’t miss his tips on how to become a good manager!!!

4 Visions: CMYK

Four visions, Four professors address two issues – what could be considered the most important management subject, and whether the world is seeing a shift in its center of gravity.

As you probably know, CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black, namely the four base ink colors.
In offset and digital printing the CMYK ink colors are applied to the paper in successive layers. By overlapping the four colors in varying concentrations a huge number of other colors can be created. As a result, the combined visual effects of the four CMYK colors produce what we commonly call full color printing.
I believe that the visions of the four professors featured in this video serve in much the same way as “base colors” for developing thought in the field of management. They basically address two issues – what could be considered the most important management subject, and whether the world is seeing a shift in its center of gravity. Prof. de l´Etraz disagrees with Dean Iniguez, and Prof. D´Souza disagrees with Dean Boehm. It seems that agreement is just not their thing… Check out what they have to say!!!

All four Professor along with Ioschka fischer, Malcom Gladwell… were present at The Korean World Knowledge Forum 2012

Globe-trotting

When the idea of doing a video of Dean Iniguez occured to me I instantly thought of the book  When the Going Was Good by Evelyn Waugh because the guy, the Dean, is always going.

In particular, I thought of one of the essays in the book, “Globe-trotting”, which begins randomly in Aden, then runs through the Zanzibar coast and down into the Congo. This is what Dean Iniguez does. He is always on the go, ready to spread education around the world. In this video you’ ll have the opportunity to see him in China and also in Segovia flying in a balloon, which as he puts it,  is “a metaphysical experience”.
