Oh please ….

August 8, 2010

Two long sessions to day on the future of management education, on the subject of which I will post on over the rest of the week – a lot of material to record and summarise. However one statement on the panel this afternoon really irritated me. The Dean of UCLA said that Management Schools were providing the modern equivalent of a liberal arts education. She suggested that English, History and Philosophy majors might disagree with her. Well this Philosophy major not only disagrees he is appalled. In ideological terms most management schools provide not a liberal education, but a neo-liberal indoctrination program.
