The Future of Management Education: Reconsidering Professional Education and Action Learning.
Raelin, Joseph A.
Metropolitan Universities: An International Forum, v7 n3 p57-72 Win 1996
Management education is struggling with two distinct approaches: an objective approach, the professional education model, which emphasizes theory, academic assessment, breadth of subject matter, and technical problem-solving; and an interpretive approach, action learning, which values practice, managerial assessment, depth of subject matter, and problem-finding. A third approach that goes beyond a synthesis of these two is outlined. (MSE)
