In an exclusive interview with Poets & Quants, Dean François Ortalo-Magné discusses the future of business schools, and how the Wisconsin School of Business at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is working to meet the future needs of its graduates.

Technology will play a critical role in helping the School fulfill its educational mission, according to Ortalo-Magné, which is to shift the focus of education  from “delivering teaching” to “inspiring learning.”

“The move from ‘delivering’ to ‘inspiring’ is more about shifting the responsibilities of learning outcomes from the student to the teacher,” says Ortalo-Magné, Albert O. Nicholas Dean of the Wisconsin School of Business. “Technology allows us to envisage a much more tailored and effective approach to life-long learning.”
