Management and meditation: Asian business schools break US mold

Educators shift focus from 'American capitalism' to homegrown values

Japan's Institute for Strategic Leadership will establish a graduate school next year with a distinctly Asian approach.

TOKYO -- From Japan to India, Asian business schools are going back to their cultural roots.

After years of following the American capitalist model, some educational institutions are rethinking their philosophies, veering away from what they see as an excessive focus on short-term profits. Instead, they want to instill what they consider "Asian values" in students, combining high aspirations with a spirit of public service.
