What will the working world look like in 36 years' time? Will businesspeople spend their entire careers connecting virtually with a team they have never met? Will the MBA degree, constantly threatened by technology and time constraints, still exist as we know it?
These are the questions posed by the second BusinessBecause MBA Survey and Competition. MBA students and applicants around the world are invited to provide their predictions of what the office of the future will look like – in 300 words.
As well as the competition, there are survey questions about the working world of 2050 which participants can sink their teeth into.
The author of the winning entry will win a $1,000 cash prize and a mentoring session with a senior partner at Bain & Company, the leading management consulting firm.
The 10 best entrants will also win free copies of The FT Business Book of the Year ‘The Everything Store’ and have the opportunity to publish their thoughts as headline news stories on BusinessBecause.
The BusinessBecause MBA Survey and Competition is sponsored by GMAC, administrators of business school entry exam the GMAT.
The competition judging panel includes Ryan Avent, economics correspondent for The Economist magazine, and Louisa Wong who is executive chairperson of Bó Lè Associates, Asia’s largest executive search firm.
