... apart from teaching algo's, people have to be taught too - to think about the third factor that puts everything in question. algo's are about the absolute solution to problem x. thus we become blind to factor x, the third factor, the black swan (see GFC, we are not in a bubble, houseprices never reverted back to the mean). Narrative, doubt (zweifel), intuition - vs - algo's outcome. Without narrative, what world is that, where we just have results only? No narrative (linearity), no grammar. What world is that?

There will be also be an overhaul of the curriculum, with less focus on individual academic departments, such as accounting, finance and marketing. Instead teaching will be based around four overarching concepts, which the dean says will cut across all subjects: innovation and entrepreneurship; how business interacts with government; markets, customers and growth; and what it calls “architectures of collaboration”—essentially the new ways that companies are organised, including with suppliers and customers.

The reason for the change is a belief that business problems are no longer simple enough to be solved by those rooted in a particular discipline. CEOs, says the dean, now think about the world in terms of these four concepts, not in terms of traditional silos.
