Guest Editorial: Evaluating the Future Role and Purpose of Business Schools
As I have already pointed out elsewhere (Thomas, 2007a, p. 5) there has been a growing literature over the last decade questioning the roles and purposes of the business school in modern universities. While the business school model, and its “gold standard” MBA programmes have been extremely successful (Antunes and Thomas, 2007 p. 382), business schools are at a turning point in their development and evolution. Indeed I also note (Thomas, 2007b, p. 9) that business schools “currently face an image and identity crises and have been subject to a wide range of critical reviews about their societal status as academic and professional schools”.
