Special issue on the future of business education and the business schools?
Article Type: Call for papers From: Education + Training, Volume 53, Issue 6
The phenomenal growth and development of business education and the business schools has continued unabated for the last 100 years or more. Today business education is a large and influential part of the university and college establishment.
However, the influence of business education on the economy and wider society remains in doubt. Concerns include:
the limited relevance of the academic emphasis of business education to relevance and practice
the failure to integrate analysis in any meaningful way in addressing business problems
the contrary view that the business schools have compromised their independence and objectivity in their attempt to be useful to business
the lack of any moral compass in business education and failure to understand the interface between business, government and society
the failure to come to terms with externalities, and the analysis of markets disembodied from their social, political and environmental context.
This special issue of Education + Training is interested in receiving papers on:
the contemporary transformation of the business curriculum
new modes of questioning and delivery
surveying challenges for the theory and practice of business education
critical analysis of the roles and responsibilities of business schools.
