Gloria Cordes Larson, president of Bentley University, presents a practical model of hybrid learning for the future of business education. Drawing on a wide range of research, interviews and experience inside and outside higher education, Larson describes the urgent needs of today's college and high-school population and makes clear and compelling recommendations for how colleges, parents, and employers can better prepare today's graduates for work and life after college. The way forward is to help students master both liberal arts and professional approaches to work situations. Students also need foundations of knowledge in humanities as well as technical or professional domains. Larson focuses closely on how a hybrid learning model for college parallels and complements the "learning organization" model used by today's most advanced companies. Convening the voices of many experts - educators, business leaders, policy experts, and students themselves - she describes how hybrid learning takes place in four critical venues: classroom, cohort, community and corporation. She concludes with an examination of how Millennials and "Generation Z" that follows them are demonstrably different from previous generations in their needs - and their promise.
