At the Net Impact conference last fall, I was pleased to see the number of MBA students interested in education entrepreneurship. It appears that “green business” is the leading draw for B-schoolers that want to “do well while doing good;” however there were many well-attended sessions on education, and the exhibit hall included several of the usual edsuspects looking for fresh talent.
I was surrounded by talented, and educated MBA students motivated to make a positive impact on the world. Leading a school is a great opportunity, but what are the options if you haven’t already been a teacher?? Go back and get another Masters in education, incur even more student loans, and then spend 2-3 years teaching first??
I say an Education X-Prize for the person that can fix this one.
