"HARVARD Business School, stung by criticism that it has not prepared alumni to cope with the economic meltdown, will dissect its performance using a practice it employs to examine corporations in crisis.

A taskforce, created in November at the direction of the dean, Jay Light, is writing a case study to scrutinise whether the school is failing to teach students to understand and manage risk in the current environment, said Paul Healy, the co-chairman of the panel."

Excellent - by the time I graduate, the study will probably show that I learned nothing useful in the two years prior :(

Interesting. I bet they'll introduce some kind of new leadership/decision-making class as a result of this...

I do like this effort, but I still believe that HBS is an indirect measure, and not the cause of the mess. It really comes to the individual, and people need to see it from this perspective, and not blame the school. But to each their own.
