The Future of Management Research in Europe in 2030 (FMRE project) Coffee break included
The purpose of this session is to suspend thinking in the here and now and imagine the long term future of how European business and management education might evolve over the next 15 years. If we have a god grasp of the main driving forces and how they will shape that future, then we  can create three or four scenarios of the future. An examination of each one can help us prepare a better strategic response today. This hands-on workshop has been popular in each cycle of the programme as it opens up mindsets to different thinking and to different thoughts.

Theme 2: The Future of Management Research in Europe

08:30

Walk to school

09:00 – 10:00

Responsible Research in Business and Management
The research driven craze that has led to a privileging of papers in four star journals has had some unintended consequences in two main areas. First, the science used in those papers has been subject to great scrutiny and critique, with many papers being retracted before and after publication. Second, the critique from many engaged stakeholders like businessmen and politicians has called into question the relevance and usefulness of such work. The UK Education Minister described business and management academics as a 'bunch of people talking to themselves'. This session will examine the causes of our current situation and suggest a way ahead.

  • Peter McKiernan, Academic Director of the Programme; Professor of Management, University of Strathclyde, UK

10:00 – 11:00

The Future of Business Schools in Europe
Business schools compete in a strategic arena that has been booming while being plagued by several severe issues. The rules of the game have tightened as BSchools search for ever more resources to build reputation. In this context, research plays a critical role linked to rankings and accreditations. The dynamics at work in the arena and their implications need to be fully understood to discuss how research leadership may navigate the troubled waters of the tense and demanding system now in place in Europe and beyond.

  • Thomas Durand, Chaired Professor, Strategic Management, le Cnam, FR

Coffee break

11:15 – 12:15

The Transition from Publishing to Exchange Driven Relationships (part 1)
In this two-part session we start from the current faculty model where publishing in ABS/ERIM/FT/UTD and other selective sets of journals is the norm and the attached faculty model where payments and faculty time are connected to these journal and classical impact metrics. We will go through this logic and discuss pros and cons. The current system has it's limits. Business academia has seen its share of integrity issues. The new responsible turn in academia is transitioning the faculty and reserach model. Focus is shifting from journals to contributions and from articles to exchange. New metrics emerge and also new accreditation criteria for Faculty like the 2013 AACSB faculty classifications. What would an augmented facultymodel look like? How can the perspective of responsible research and AACSB accreditation principles help dean of research and faculty to develop a more inclusive faculty model and impact metrics for business schools.
