Opinion | From “hired hands” to “higher aims” in management4 min read 12 Nov 2018, 09:41 PM IST

Trying to familiarize myself with the subject of business education before I took up my current role last month, I had asked a friend to suggest readings. He mentioned Rakesh Khurana’s From Higher Aims to Hired hands. The book was written first in 2007, a year before the global financial and economic crisis broke out.
