Q&A with Ahmed Shaikh, director of Regent Business School, Durban
Business schools must adapt to new challenges
FM: How can business schools prepare students for artificial intelligence (AI) and other new technologies?
Shaikh: Business schools are being challenged to create curriculums and teaching and learning methodologies agile enough to adapt to the AI world, to prepare 21st-century future leaders. AI will transform the workplace from task-based characteristics to human-centred ones. There is a need for much more interdisciplinary teaching, research and innovation.
