The importance of good management in information organisations is discussed, together with the need for management education for information professionals. Using the situation in Ghana as an example, the types of education being offered in both the library school and other continuing education programmes are explored. An examination is made of the weaknesses of the programme as well as future trends. It is concluded that, although the teaching of management is important in African library schools, every effort should be made to ensure that the academic levels and local situations are taken into account when planning management education programmes.
