Business schools are arguably some of the most influential institutions in contemporary society. The research and education they provide set the standard for how future leaders manage local and global organizations - a responsibility requiring continual discussion, development and challenge.
This exciting book explores the role of business schools through 3 key dimensions:
- How business school legitimacy has been challenged by the recent economic crisis and corporate scandals;
- How schools contribute to shaping and transforming business conduct; and
- How institutions, past and present, develop their identities to face the challenges presented by the ongoing globalization process.
Combining global perspectives from business school Deans, scholars and stakeholders, this book presents a unique discussion of the current and future challenges facing business schools and their contributions to society.
