Management Education in the 1970s: Growth and Issues.
Rose, Harold B.; And Others
The probable demand for and supply of management education in the United Kingdom over the next six or seven years is investigated. The project was intended partly to provide a preliminary study for the National Economic Development Office Management Education, Training, and Development Committee and partly to meet the special request of the Council of Industry for Management Education for information to serve as a background for future policy. Management education in the United Kingdom is in a state of rapid transition. According to the 1966 Sample Census of Population, there were almost 1/2 million "managers" in Great Britain, representing 6% of the population. There are approximately 12,000 places available for postgraduate and post-experience day-study in educational institutions and the permanent centers of companies and industrial organizations. The demand for courses has been growing most rapidly on the part of private industry. The 118 industrial companies replying to the survey reported an increase of 125% in the number of managers sent on internal courses between 1966 and 1968. The most serious direct obstacle to the expansion of capacity is the shortage of suitable staff. There is a widespread need to improve the quality of existing teachers. Postgraduate courses need to be strengthened in certain directions. More attention also needs to be given to the effectiveness of different types of post-experience education in subsequent managerial performance. Four appendices are attached. (CK)
