Academics and managers who strive for a humanistic management education usually care for people, but they are challenged by sophisticated intellectual subjects and practical problems. The authors' experience, competence and commitment enables them to present an extensive coverage of important views and an in-depth study of these issues. Eduard Bonet, ESADE, Spain This volume is a timely initiative. It resonates with important questions on globalization and its consequences, on the unrelenting quest for efficiency and productivity, on recent corporate scandals and on the responsibilities of managers and management education. This book is a manifesto for an intellectual revolution. In a complex and open world, managers often bump into the limits of the decontextualized tools associated with mainstream management knowledge and practice. Managers have to navigate in a world that is not only economic but also political, cultural, shaped by history and ethical traditions and preoccupations not only as a mark of social capital but really as a way to enhance their managerial skills and efficiency. The role of management education should be to prepare them for that odyssey and this volume tells us that humanities could be a powerful tool in that sense. This project is served by a highly legitimate international panel of contributors who collectively point towards an alternative for management thinking and management education. Marie-Laure Djelic, ESSEC Business School, France Management Education and Humanities argues that management teachers and researchers seem to be increasingly dissatisfied with the way managers are usually educated in western countries. It claims that educational practices and methods would greatly benefit from reflection on the implicit assumptions and paradigms behind those practices, and debates the role that humanism and humanities might play in the formation of new managerial élites. The book examines three themes that have emerged as central to the contemporary debate on management education: the profession of management; humanism as a philosophy and worldview; and the humanities as an academic field where management schools could find new inspirations for curricula. All three themes are scrutinized in a frame of reference extended between two different points of view: the traditional view, with its tendency to idealize (and even sometimes romanticize) humanism, the humanities and management as a social function; and the past-modern view, which is inclined to skepticism and to the deconstruction of social and cultural phenomena. Providing a lively account of this ongoing debate and exploring new trends and experiences in management education, this book will be invaluable reading for teachers, students and researchers of management, management strategy, and organizational behaviour.

Due to the recent global financial crises, academic business schools have come in for much criticism, having, in the eyes of the public, failed in their responsibility to society by teaching future managers only how to increase their personal gain without any consideration as to their actions’ social and cultural consequences. Realising that there is a pressing need to innovate their educational offers accordingly, business schools are beginning to turn to the humanities and social sciences to improve on the understanding and thus the teaching of management. This book is the result of an empirical study conducted at eight academic business schools that either already practise or are beginning to practise linking management education to the humanities and social sciences. Gathered mostly in interviews our research team conducted during site visits to these schools, the material presented shows three major fields of concern: how to shift the focus from instrumental to transformative learning, how to reframe the concept of disciplinary subject matter towards a more relational understanding of knowledge—especially in the light of the impact digitalisation is having on education—and how to address the organisational, as well as the political consequences of management education turning towards the inclusion of the humanities and social sciences strategically. The findings indicate that the humanities and social sciences indeed offer knowledge which can significantly help management education with meeting the challenges of the twenty-first century. Innovating management education by making it part of its program portfolios proves a challenge in and of itself in the face of a university system which still determinedly clings to disciplinary segregation. Reforming management education towards an engagement with fields of knowledge traditionally at best ignored and at worst vilified as being completely useless in the "real world" may therefore place academic business schools at the forefront of a movement that is beginning to reshape the educational landscape as a whole. This book will be of value to researchers, academics and students in the fields of business, management studies, organisational studies and education studies.

The position and role of the business school and its educational programmes have become increasingly prominent, yet also questioned and contested. What management education entails, and how it is enacted, has become a matter of profound concern in the field of higher education and, more generally, for the development of the organized world. Drawing upon the humanities and social sciences, The Routledge Companion to Reinventing Management Education imagines a different and better education offered to students of management, entrepreneurship and organization studies. It is an intervention into the debates on what is taught and how learning takes place, demonstrating both the potential and the limits of what the humanities and social sciences can do for management education. Divided into six sections, the book traces the history and theory of management education, reimagining central educational principles and outlining an emerging practice-based approach. With an international cast of authors, The Routledge Companion to Reinventing Management Education has been written for contemporary and future educators and for students and scholars who seek to make a difference through their practice.

Team-Based Learning (TBL) is a unique, powerful, and proven form of small-group learning that is being increasingly adopted in higher education to achieve high levels of student engagement, critical thinking, and retention. TBL has been used successfully in both small and large classes, in computer-supported and online classes, in nearly every discipline, and in countries around the world. This book introduces the practical elements of TBL and how to apply them in the social sciences and humanities, paying particular attention to the specification of learning goals, which can be a unique challenge in our fields. The core of the book consists of examples of how TBL has been incorporated into the cultures of disciplines as varied as economics, education, literature, politics, psychology, and theatre. At a time of increasing course sizes, and emphasis on learning outcomes, TBL offers the means to meet such demands while helping students learn course content in deeper and more accessible ways than they have in the past.

Sports Management and Sports Humanities

Sports Management and Sports Humanities

This book focuses on (1) sports management, (2) sports economics and policy, and (3) sports humanities. The fact that sports humanities is a part of the sports management education program means that a person with extensive knowledge—not only business-related comprehension but also acquaintance with art-related fields, such as the humanities and law—will play a central role in sports management in the next generation. The former two parts aim to provide a clear understanding of sports management and marketing, including the motivational and/or emotional components of fan behavior and sports participation, sports club management, sports sponsorship, athlete reputation management, sports economics and elite sports policy. As stated above, various topics can be found in sports management research from the macro to the micro point of view and they are not individually separated but intimately connected. Moreover, given the interdisciplinary nature of sports management, specific, common and cross-border issues arise in each country. Data from several countries are included in the sports management part. Research beyond borders and collaborative research are expected to increase more significantly than before. Researchers in sports management are expected to find the best answers to such questions as how to manage sports-related organizations or people effectively, how to stimulate the global or local economy and exert social impact through sports, and how to help people gain well-being through sports. These research questions have not changed all through the ages and across the globe. In this book, the researchers also try to find the optimized solution in each topic and readers can find traces of their passionate exploration.

Internationalizing Business Education is a carefully edited selection of twenty-three essays written by leading educators of international business. this exhaustive treatment of the various dimensions of business school internationalization is divided into seven parts: Rationale and Conceptual Foundation; Historical Perspectives; Faculty Development; Curriculum; Institutional Strategies; Center/Institute Models, and Linkages. This work evolved from the Roundtable on Internationalizing the Business Schools and Faculty held in June 1991 at Michigan State University. The conference brought together business faculty and administrators from North America, Europe, and Australia who shared their perspectives and experiences, and brainstormed about approaches to internationalizing business education. These experts present their views in this volume. In the 1990s, businesses continue to face the challenge of staying competitive in an increasingly global market. Business schools need to internationalize their programs to remain competitive. Until now, information about alternative strategies was not widely available. This book provides business educators, public policymakers, scholars of educational practices, and business executives with the tools they need to compete globally.
