Join a prestigious panel of business school and government leaders to consider:

“Should business schools prepare students for public/government service careers in addition to private service careers?”

Employment in public/government entities at the federal, state, and local levels is growing faster than employment in private-sector entities. At the same time, widespread dissatisfaction has been expressed with the productivity of public-sector entities, due in part to the training of both public-entity and private-sector managers.

This symposium explores whether business schools should provide public policy training, particularly for students pursuing careers in public management. The outcome has important implications both for the structure of higher education in the United States and the future efficiency of the public sector.
