The paper suggests a perspective on improvements in business education which will be reflected in the firms’ improved resilience and economic sustainability.
The research aims to test the hypothesis that "pre-determined contents of the business courses become insufficient for the development of students' improvisation to find solutions to challenges occurring in an uncertain environment." This subject has received insufficient attention, leaving a significant gap. Moving in this direction of transformative learning will ensure students' ability to apply critical thinking and widen their frames of understanding. Graduates will acquire skills and the ability to quickly adapt their knowledge to recover business operations from crises of different scales. The output of higher business educational institutions will become more quality-oriented.
The method of content analysis of existing lifelong learning models in adult education allowed authors to incorporate additional teaching modalities and introduce a new model for the current uncertain expectations of businesses.
The paper concludes with the reasons why current business-related programs require updates. The changes mentioned above will equip graduates with practical knowledge of different aspects of social responsibility and a conscious desire to contribute to a more sustainable future.
