Why the Arts Are Integral to Management Education

Management education follows a strictly structured pattern, while meeting career demands may often entail tolerating ambiguities, or even unlearning that which has already been taught. The elective course, Tracking Creative Boundaries, designed for students at IIM, Bangalore, seeks to inculcate this aspect by introducing students to artistes, all masters in their own chosen fields. Not only is society best represented by the arts, but also because artistes have always had the capacity to inspire. Their ability to transform themselves and thereby the wider environment as well is brought about by their constant endeavour to reinvent themselves, while respecting their own vocations - a lesson that could stand in equal good stead for the business leaders of tomorrow.
