以下、Duke, Fuqua School学部長のインタビュー記事が掲載されています。
About 40-45% of our students are not from the US. We think it’s really important to be a global business school because we’re completely interdependent and it will be better if we recognise that we need to work with people who are different from us.
Leaders should be able to bring about collective diversity which starts with the assumption that we’re stronger because we’re together and we’re different. When people believe you care about them something amazing happens. Then they do have a sense of shared identity. They feel valued and welcome. Supportive ambition is really important.
Our emphasis is on making sure that in our curriculum we not only give people a sense of economic institutions and the way people conduct business but also behaviors that exist in different parts of the world. It’s important to create, practical global first hand experiences for our students, and you need to be someone who can embrace differences.
One of our great advantage is that we’re so fundamentally interdisciplinary. The emphasis is on fostering team spirit, and we have this thing called team Fuqua, which is an important part of our MBA experience.
