Several leading business schools change their MBA curriculum or restructure their program, reports Businessweek. The University of Virginia’s Darden Graduate School of Business for example reworked its first year of the program allowing students to better balance recruiting activities, club events and course work. The French business school Essec is also relaunching its programme, mainly changing its intake requirements. Initially the school didn’t require students to have significant work experience, whereas it expects now around six years’ professional know-how. The biggest changes come from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.
