journal contributionposted on 2021-11-23, 18:13 authored by Dr. Kehdinga George Fomunyam
Business education is regarded to be useful in ensuring business success. However, it has been discovered that business education is not necessarily making organisations achieve their objectives. As the business environment is constantly changing, there is a need to have systems that will be capable of responding to market changes in order to achieve overall business goals. . Responsiveness may be a useful tool in solving the issues plaguing business education. Therefore, this study assessed whether business education being responsive will help push for higher organisational success. Responsiveness has always been studied using cultural responsiveness, economic responsiveness, disciplinary responsiveness and learning responsiveness. This study thus examined how these dimensions of responsiveness may be used to solve the issues with business education and hence solve organisational problems. The study concluded that all the four dimensions of responsiveness are important to solve the challenges of business education and therefore ensure organisational success. This study therefore recommends that to address the challenges facing business organisations, it is important to solve the problem form the root by making business education responsive along economic, cultural, disciplinary and pedagogical lines.
