On the 9th April 2012, Professor Gwen Griffith-Dickson wrote an article in The Financial Times discussing the importance of the MA Business Administration (MBA) curriculum embracing key teachings of theology and philosophy. Professional and technical expertise as taught in business schools is undeniably important, but there is increasing recognition that the most critical skills for leadership in business and finance are certain generic thinking skills – chief among them the capacity for accurate analysis and reliable decision-making. Rigorous study in philosophy and theology equips students and society’s future employees with the skills, knowledge and experience to examine and understand the workings of the mind, the foundations of thought and the sources of knowledge. What was once a rarefied discipline – understanding the nature of thinking and how to improve it – is now seen as central to business concerns and organisational performance.
