Nitin Nohria, Dean of Harvard Business School says that one challenge the school is facing today is the erosion of faith in capitalism.
His stance is that since the Business School has been closely associated with trends in business, it must also work toward reassuring society that the capitalist system is productive.
According to Nohria, “We — as a school that has often been associated with business, which is closely associated with capitalism — need to ask, ‘what can we do to make sure that society’s trust in capitalism remains strong and can be rebuilt.” Nohria notes.
He also notes that Harvard has taken actions to address this, including providing more courses focused on economic structure.
