There is this timeless edict by George S. Patton: "Don’t tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results". We, at JSB, follow this dictum in letter and spirit. It is this continuous engagement with the rituals of management teaching that has metamorphed into a strong belief that it is not enough for management students to be knowledgeable mangers in their chosen domain; we want them to be leaders in their field. It is leaders who visualize, catalyze and implement change, which is the very force of life.
It is no wonder that there is the dominant idea that management education should endeavour to produce ethical and morally upright leaders. It is here that we find the roles of values and principles. And, to bring about change and take responsibility for it, requires an invincible grasp over knowledge. Hence, the management education at JSB revolves around the tri-polar limits of knowledge, values and leadership.
A leader in the world of business can wrought things that no one dreams of, and this quality of leading is very much a part of the DNA of JSB. When one leaves the highly competitive zone of JSB, it should come as no surprise to our MBAs that people who create change are the people who lead. Very much part of this leadership exercise is the act of accepting the statement of fact that one also needs to be a follower, in one guise or other, underlining Benjamin Disraeli’s everlasting testimonial: 'I must follow the people. Am I not their leader?".
Within the two short years that the students spend at JSB, we give them a plethora of opportunity to bring to fore their leadership qualities. Every initiative at JSB is a product of the student’s creative vigour. The leader in the student foresees the outcome of his / her actions, and it is this comfort zone within JSB that pushes him / her to try novel activities. We, on balance, trust that MBAs become managers and entrepreneurs, sooner or later, but it is this ability to see a vision of the future that endears them to their place of work. Only a student who has the leader in him / her awakened can accomplish this act of rational anticipation. For, it is a truism when Theodore M. Hesburgh utters those eternal words of wisdom: "The very essence of leadership is that you have to have vision. You can't blow an uncertain trumpet."
