Ms Yogavelli “Yogi” Nambiar (right), CEO of the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation, struck a cord when she asked at the recent Entrepreneurship Development in Higher Education (EDHE) Lekgotla: “Why is it that business schools tend to still have entrepreneurship as a side dish, rather than at the core of the main menu?” The Allan Gray Orbis Foundation funds and mentors young people in Southern Africa with entrepreneurial potential.

Nambiar posed this question as part of her introduction to the session Rethinking the Role of Business Schools on 16 September. That question perfectly led in Dr Jonathan Mark’s presentation about Developing an Entrepreneurship-focused MBA that brings together the Entrepreneurship Ecosystem.
