The talent assessment platform hosts a webinar with the former Dean of the Rotman School of Management to discuss topics surrounding the MBA.

Toronto, ON (May 12th, 2015) – Kira Talent, the company behind Kira Academic, a talent assessment platform designed for university and college admissions, announces that it will host a live webinar: The Future of the MBA.  Craig Morantz, the CEO of Kira talent, and Roger Martin, the former Dean of the Rotman School of Management at University of Toronto, will cover what the future holds for the MBA and answer participant’s questions in an interactive Q&A session.

“Examining the higher education admissions process has given the entire Kira team a deeper understanding of the issues that are involved with the current MBA program and the opportunities for improvements,” said Craig Morantz, CEO of Kira Talent. “By combining Martin’s experience and expertise in management education with our knowledge of the admissions process, we hope to provide helpful insights and educate attendees on where we see this prestigious graduate degree going in the future.”

In the live Q&A style webinar, Martin and Morantz will discuss what the future holds for the MBA, including:

  • The issues around the three main areas of the MBA: students, faculty, and curriculum
  • How graduate business educators can produce more broadly trained and creatively oriented leaders
  • Why businesses need to attract more diverse MBA candidates instead of more ‘data crunchers’

Morantz and Martin make the perfect duo for this webinar. As the CEO of Kira Talent, Morantz works with admissions teams at elite schools and knows what they’re looking for in applicants. Martin spent 15 years as the Dean of Rotman School of Management at University of Toronto, and his recent book, The Future of the MBA, provides a much-needed review of the current state of management education.
