This cutting-edge book argues that the best way to advance the future of management education is to nurture scholars who take a fascination in the intellectual field itself. Moving beyond recent trends in the scholarship, Stuart Middleton investigates the underlying beliefs of key approaches to management education, identifying important avenues for future contributions to the field.

Middleton traces the historical development of management education as a discipline and introduces its three key schools of thought - Rational, Critical and Postliberal. Chapters pose reflective and provocative questions to the reader, allowing them to both understand their position within the intellectual field and develop their own research projects. Bridging the gap between discipline-specific knowledge and knowledge in teaching and learning, the book ultimately provides a fresh, nuanced perspective on the beliefs, institutions, social relations and practices of management education.

Advancing the Future of Management Education Research will be an invaluable resource for scholars and students across management and management education. It will also be a vital guide for both new and experienced teachers in the field.
Critical Acclaim
‘Middleton delves into three diverse approaches to management education, offering readers a range of perspectives to consider in the field of educational practices. Thought-provoking reflective questions at the conclusion of each chapter are an invaluable resource for scholars spanning all career stages. It''s akin to having a dedicated coach on the sidelines, motivating a reflective practice and propelling management educators’ professional growth.’
– Lisa Callagher, University of Auckland, New Zealand

‘Advancing the Future of Management Education Research is a creative, wide-ranging, and fascinating exploration of the scholarship of teaching and learning in the field of management education. By examining three schools of research on management education—the Rational, Critical, and Postliberal Schools—this monograph provides a comprehensive and practical perspective on both the history and future of management education research and practice.’
– Diana Bilimoria, Case Western Reserve University, US

‘This engaging and well-written book offers an important and insightful perspective on the emergence, development and future of management education as a diverse intellectual field. Middleton offers both a vibrant invitation and an earnest call to action for more business school academics to engage with this vital field of scholarship.’
– April Wright, University of Warwick, UK

‘Stuart Middleton’s book provides a step-by-step strategy process for advancing Management Education. The book provides a masterful overview of the past approaches to management education (i.e., rational school, critical school, and postliberal school) as groundwork to ask instructors a series of self-reflective questions about how these approaches resonate with their own values and in today’s world. This introspection provides a foundation for each instructor to further reflect on what the next approach of management education must entail. The result is an ongoing strategic discussion about how management education can stay relevant in a changing world. I have yet to see a book that accomplishes these objectives in one read. Well done, Stuart! This book is our pathway forward.’
