Technical developments in ICT are influencing organizational structures, processes and business model in manners not seen before. Its impact in education and training is visible in the form of anytime – anywhere learning and educational programs addressing students in territories beyond their traditional zone. New colleges, primarily offering technical and science programs have embraced e-learning in big way. MBA schools, specially the top notch appear to be cautious and slow in embracing the new technology. As per the well-known management guru, Michael E Porter businesses have no choice in adoption of internet technologies. Only question before them is how to deploy it. Schools need to figure out how to blend new technologies in their residential MBA programs. Proper design has potential to prepare students better for modern organizations. Also, it will provide a lab to faculty to investigate many challenges faced in global organizations.
