"While there is universal agreement about a manager's need to learn from experience and to balance multiple perspectives, most MBA programs still fail to address the issue by not making it a central part of both the content and the process," Haggerty says.
"We took the time to make integration and reflection a requirement in every course, recognizing the value in using the workplace as a context for learning and as a means for helping managers think expansively."
