The Year’s Top 10

The past year featured dramatic highs and catastrophic lows. As our readers navigated challenges in business, education and society, what articles helped them make sense of news and events? This edition of IWT highlights some of our most popular topics from 2022. 

Looking ahead, we also asked a selection of executives, journalists and scholars to forecast the future in Predictions for Business & Society in 2023.

Ideas Worth Teaching will return in January. Have a happy and safe holiday!

TEACHING INNOVATIONS
Poets&Quants: Riley Webster

“This is a class that invites people to think about themselves. You go to business school and you think about strategy and the digital economy but what about thinking about what you want to do with your life?”
TEACHING INNOVATIONS
Stanford Social Innovation Review: Rebecca Shamash
How can rethinking approaches to business education help build better societies, and organizations?

TEACHING INNOVATIONS

So, that happened. What would you do?
