dc.description.abstractOver the coming decades, New Zealand is predicted to experience slowing growth, a narrowing gap between births and deaths, and an ageing population. This paper considers how business schools can engage with the challenges of an ageing population. Critical demographic and fiscal factors are outlined. Optimal changes to government policy and workplace practices are then considered. Finally, the opportunities and challenges for business education are discussed. Conclusions are drawn about the use of technology, necessary shifts in attitudes, and the incorporation of principles of gerontagogy into normal teaching practice in the business school classroom.
