Future of B-Schools Part 2: Wharton fails to make it to innovators list!

And then you wonder why B-Schools are failing. Many financial institutions and schools that take the pride (what is that in todays global economy anyways) in teaching the fresh grads to go after the global economy where they have to chase a new and wild breed of money lenders. You have the Egotistic Sheikhs, the Opulent Indians, the Angry Africans, the distrustful Chinese and the disgruntled Venezuelans, and they don't care about your background.

Anyways we are still on track and intend to drill all business schools one by one and ask them this simple question: "Why on earth should I spend my time and my parents hard-earned money into your institution?"

I have been talking to many young fresh and experienced graduates (with work experience, that is) and they all are weighing their odds and even wondering why on earth they should spend loads of cash when the "personal ROI" is still achievable with a manageable investment that does not involve any huge investment in failing and dilapidated institutions in the west.

Here's the list of the school that did make it into the innovation list:

Rank- United States Schools
1 Stanford University
2 The University of Michigan
3 University of California, Berkeley
4 University of Notre Dame
5 Columbia University
6 Cornell University
7 Duquesne University
8 Yale University
9 New York University
10 The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Rank- European Schools
1 Instituto de Empresa
2 ESADE Business School
3 Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University
4 The University of Nottingham
5 University of Jyväskylä
6 Copenhagen Business School
8 IMD - International Institute for Management Development
9 Cranfield School of Management
10 University of Bath

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
