Bridging the Academic-Business School Gap

Leading academics and senior business leaders came together in London this week at the inaugural briefing for a significant new service that enables businesses to improve managerial practice and behaviour Ideas for Leaders.

Ideas for Leaders has been created to share the huge untapped value of academic research from the world’s top 50 business schools including Ashridge.

The new service unearths the latest thought-leadership and translates it into a concise and accessible format – that can spark discussions and thinking on how executives can change develop and make organizations better places to work – and to work better.

Dr Vicki Culpin Dean of Faculty and Director of Research at Ashridge Business School said in her keynote address:

“The research undertaken at leading business schools has huge potential to be of real value to business education and therefore make a significant impact in the commercial world – it’s just a question of getting it out there. The traditional process of publishing research in academic journals often prevents it reaching the potential end users who would benefit most from it. This is why Ideas for Leaders is so important: it bridges the cavernous gap between academia and the corporate world.”
