Business Schools Hiring a New Kind of Dean

According to a  new report published by the Korn/Ferry Institute, business leaders today need to get a new set of skills from their education: leadership, critical thinking, creativity, ethics, global perspective, and cultural awareness (sounds like ABET a-k criteria, no?). 

The new business dean skill set (which I may say applies to ALL professionals) include: strategic skills, enterprise management, innovation, people and relationship effectiveness. Shouldn’t faculty possess these skills as well (otherwise, how can they develop them in students)?
