Why Teamwork is a Dirty Word in B-School

Bloomberg BusinessWeek published a story last Friday about teamwork. The only problem was that it wasn’t a piece that glorified the value of teamwork. Instead it was insight into the fact that American business school students hate teamwork.

This is a must read, not because the story is so well done (though it is), but it is a must read because it shows that business schools and business students seem to believe that real work is only based on their work as individuals. In life, we must learn to rely on one another. We must understand how to collaborate and connect.

Can we work to change this type of thinking, or is it too late?
