Abstract

University-based management-education programs have proliferated in recent years, and business people have been flocking back to school for refresher classes of all sorts. But the hottest new trend in management education--the corporate university--isn''t in academia at all. This interview with Jeanne Meister, president of the New York City consulting firm Corporate University Xchange and author of Corporate Quality Universities: Lessons in Building a World-Class Work Force, discusses how corporate universities are pioneering imaginative new ways of teaching managers the skills they need in a knowledge-based economy, while at the same time using education to augment their parent corporations'' business strategies.
