Creating Awareness: The role of Education (2)

Higher education will need to build on learnings previously provided by schools and focus on intellectual development as well as on the physical, psychological and emotional aspects. Cultural and personality traits and the understanding of psychometrics will need to become as much a permanent function of the learning curriculum as will be the case for the teaching of global interdependencies. The integration of humanities will complete the picture, no matter the core subject. The leadership curriculum in particular will need to be enhanced in the business realm e.g. by studying the business case behind social entrepreneurship; corporate social responsibility will have to become a standard elective. And real life project work should be structured and evaluated against the backdrop of their social and sustainable impact.
