Management Education for the World

Management Education for the World

A Vision for Business Schools Serving People and Planet

Katrin Muff, Thomas Dyllick, Mark Drewell, John North, Paul Shrivastava and Jonas Haertle

This book explores the 21st century agenda of management education, identifying three fundamental goals: educating and developing globally responsible leaders, enabling business organizations to serve the common good, and engaging in the transformation of business and the economy. It is a clarion call of service to society for a sector lost between the interests of faculty, business and the schools themselves at the expense of people and planet. It sees business education stepping up to the plate with the ability of holding and creating a space to provide responsible leadership for a sustainable world embodied in the central and unifying element of the 50+20 vision, the collaboratory.

Subjects: business and management, corporate social responsibility, management education, management and sustainability


Broadening the skills, experiences and competencies of faculty represents the single biggest step in achieving the 50+20 vision. Business schools are urged to create conditions that trigger faculty’s intrinsic motivation to grow and develop. Creating an environment that promotes change and an appetite for learning and development is one aspect. The next challenge lies in the creation of effective training and re-training programs for both new and existing faculty. One of the critical levers for transforming current institutions in general and business schools in particular hinges on developing a new breed of faculty.
