Originally published in 1989. Given the increasing amount of economic competition at a global level, the quality and provision of management education is coming under very close scrutiny in a large number of countries, both in developing countries where management is relatively new, and in developed countries where it is more established.
This book aims to enable debates within any one country to be placed within a wider context. It is based on eighteen contributions from experts in countries around the world who review the state of management education and the problems and priorities that are currently faced.
Anyone concerned about the future of management education in any one country – whether they be policy makers or workers within the system – will find this book of particular value. It will also be extremely useful for the discerning clients of management development not because it gives a guide to individual institutions or courses, but because it contextualises many of the key issues and choices involved in the provision and use of management education.
