Charles Wankel, Peter J. Tobin College of Business associate
professor of management, delivered a keynote address during the
2010 M/O/T International Conference on Management Learning in
Vienna, Austria on December 2, 2010.
His presentation, entitled Management Education in an Epoch of
Catastrophes, provided an overview of the diverse ways that
educators should be addressing the challenge of transforming
management education and the importance that business schools
develop leaders equipped to deal with the implications of the
