Boston University School of Management
The Boston University School of Management will mark its 100th anniversary in September 2013. Our proud history includes being one of the very first to admit women, and the establishment of an MBA in 1925. It was an early founder of research institutes and one of the nation's very first to institute specific curriculum addressing nonprofit and health care management. We created the Center for Team Learning and the first MS-MBA, a high tech dual-degree that recruiters praised. We taught entrepreneurial studies before it had a formal name. We pioneered the move from the operations- and financially-based management models of the past into the network-centric curriculum of contemporary times.
What are your capabilities?
Most oil and gas industry companies define what they do by their products. But they would be better off defining what they do by their capabilities (ie what they can do which people will pay a premium for), and their relationships. Most importantly, understand that the most important capabilities in an industry can change, says Professor Venkat Venkatraman of Boston University School of Management
