Carey Business School Launches Dean's Lecture Series
Rakesh Khurana, professor of business administration
at the Harvard Business School, is
scheduled as the inaugural speaker for the Carey Business School's
Dean's Lecture Series, to be held
from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 25, in Mason Hall on
the Homewood campus.
Khurana's lecture is titled "The Past as Prologue: The
Professionalization Project in American
Business Education." His research focuses on the
institutions that shape and educate the business
leaders of tomorrow. His recent book, From Higher Aims
to Hired Hands: The Social Transformation
of American Business Schools and the Unfulfilled Promise of
Management as a Profession, calls for
business schools to rejuvenate the intellectual and moral
training of future business leaders.
The Dean's Lecture Series is intended to enrich the
intellectual and academic life of the Carey
School and to engage the larger Johns Hopkins community in
a discussion of the latest thinking about
business school education, the opportunities and challenges
these schools face and how they will need
to respond to the future needs of society. Respected
academics from business schools around the
world will be featured.
Admission to the lecture is free, but registration at
carey.jhu.edu/deanslectures is required.
