Rethinking Management Education for the 21st Century
We have assembled a distinguished international panel of leaders and scholars in management education whose contributions reflect diverse perspectives on management theory and practice. Gerald Ferris and his associates conceptualize political skill to include self and social astuteness, influence and control, networking and building social capital, and genuineness/sincerity. Their chapter describes methods for developing and shaping such skills. Nick Nissley examines how arts-based learning is informing the practice of management education. How artful ways of knowing are being practiced in organizations. Anne McCarthy and associates provide a cutting-edge balanced assessment of both service learning theory and its current practice. Godshalk and Foster-Curtis present four models of online MBA curricula focused on part-time students including curricular issues, technology requirements, and funding and institutional commitment requirements for each model. Sabine Seufert examines eLearning models of web-base d education and web education support services. Her chapter offers a breathtaking, panoramic view of six landscapes for eLearning business models and best practices emerging from both the corporate and academic sectors. Eric Dent's chapter is a thought-provoking critique of doctoral education and innovative suggestions for developing doctoral programs more attuned to the learning requirements of executive managers seeking doctoral education. Tom Moore examines competition within the market for executive education and observes how three sets of rivals have enjoyed distinctive market place perceptions. Antonacopoulou penetratingly critiques the confusion of training with learning in management education. Reed examines the processes of globalization and how their effects should be incorporated into management education.
