Enabling Holistic Finance Education in Turbulent Times
Prof. Amann clarifies that executive education must be fully customized to fit the course participants exactly at the level where they are in in their careers. With the help of the development channel as a concept, he outlines that motives, learning needs, and personal challenge vary over time. He also clarifies that textbook approaches do not generally work at times of disruptive change and ongoing volatility, and during major crisis in our business environments. Complexity skills must represent an essential element of a holistic finance education as it is the case with a solid ethics and humanism training.
