Blair Sheppard to leave Fuqua as he heads for China – FT中文网

As for Prof Sheppard, as well as working on fund-raising and business development for Duke Kunshan University, he will continue to teach in Fuqua’s Global Executive MBA programme and to serve as chairman of Duke CE, the corporate education venture he created and led as chief executive for seven years before his appointment as dean at Fuqua.

He then established a new style of customised executive education through Duke CE, which focused on teaching corporations what they needed to know, as opposed to what the business school wanted to teach. The model – again widely aped throughout the industry – relied on high numbers of adjunct faculty, drawn from different business schools, consultancies and industry.

Prof Sheppard also recently launched a Master of Management Studies, a one-year pre-experience degree for students who have recently graduated from undergraduate programmes.

Best idea in MBA education: focused on teaching corporations what they needed to know, as opposed to what the business school wanted to teach!
