The purpose of this paper is to briefly scan the intent and content of executive education in the twentieth century, identify the major changes that took place in the business world in the 1970s, and describe their impact on the work of executives in the highly competitive, turbulent environment of the new century. The thesis of this paper is that executive education is being impacted by a “leadership theory jungle”, resulting in confusion as to the right content and context of leadership and how to teach it.
