Global management education and its radical failure: an ideology critique and some alternatives
Leader and manager behaviour is increasingly accused of being shockingly unethical or leading to damaging outcomes for people, planet, and productivity. Even against a backdrop of macro structures such as regulation and management education which promote ethics and sustainability, this problem persists. This research seminar examines the deep micro mechanisms of how ideologies influence the structures in our minds which shape action, and explores the role of management education in opening up spaces for more radical ways of being/acting. Using ideology critique as an unorthodox methodological approach, this research argues that the current approaches perpetuate a radical failure of management education (but that this can only ever be part of the story).
