Radical change in business education ?


Surprising that all of the best business schools around the world start to offer technology oriented courses, like strategy making for artificial intelligence, supporting sales with big data and machine learning, blockchain for business. It seems these technologies are the disruptive technologies that are thought to change radically both the business life and the management practices. 
It is important to emphasize again that the initiative does not come from tech geeks, not even from technical universities but actually from business universities, like Oxford and Blockchain, Harvard and AI. It seems that the "crazy" ideas that were previously communicated only by tech geeks and futurists start to reach mainstream adaptation.
Certainly, one interpretation might be that the management practices are pretty much lacking of creating something new, but I actually do not really thing that it is the case. It is about the best business schools throughout the world: If they teach technology, they thing technology will be the most important thing in business making.
