The unfulfilled promise of responsible management education

The unfulfilled promise of responsible management education

There is abundant evidence that RME is (so far) a largely unfulfilled promise. While business schools have been active in adding organizational “bells and whistles” (dedicated courses, institutes/centres), the core of their research and teaching activities still appears largely immune to the challenge of addressing societal concerns more broadly (Hommel, Painter-Morland, & Wang, 2012).

The purpose of this e-book is to analyse the barriers preventing RME from creating a more visible imprint on management education and to identify ways of overcoming them. To some extent, it turns the existing literature on its head. Rather than addressing why and how management education should be reformed, this volume is focusing on the forces behind the resistance to change.
