The Future of Management Education in Europe
Practical Scenario Building - Session 1
Facilitator:

  • Peter McKiernan, Professor of Management, University of Strathclyde, UK

Context: Europe has a rich history of management education and its legacy has influence the development of major sectors elsewhere e.g., North America. Its growth in the last 40 years has been significant and management Studies Dominates the higher education sector in many countries e.g., the U.K. Despite this, there has been much criticism about the role and contribution of business schools in modern society, especially in the aftermath of the global financial crisis, when much blame was laid at their doors. Subsequently, the EFMD recently funded a major Commission on 'Responsible Management Research', after sharp critique of the narrow and selfish research focus and questionable social science practices in the domain. So, what of the future? Scenario planning is a well established strategy tool for exploring how the future might unfold. We will use a powerful "intuitive logics" process, working our way through the drivers of change from the past, through the present and out to the future. The future will be unique to us and we will be able to see how the strategies of our own Schools and Universities are prepared for it.
