Columbia is a big place, so went to the business School again to talk with their blogger about why and how the blog was started. Unfortunately she is elsewhere and the spring break has meant the last week was spent on vacation :-)
I spoke with two MBA students about what they were doing there, and asked them how they were taught to be innovative, and how they would apply it in their work. One person said they were working for volunteer organisations, so that they would be considered innovative as a business person automatically in that field. The other was going to work in Finance, and they pointed out that they were innovative already.
This comment bought up the question of how a University, or any tertiary institution can teach innovation, leadership and ethics. The integration of innovation and other business areas is essential. I found an excellent example of a case study approach, for Engineering albeit the same principles apply: at http://www.onlineethics.dnsalias.com/CMS/about.aspx
