Business School Teaching and Democratic Culture: An International and Comparative Analysis
Kragh, Simon Ulrik; Bislev, Sven
Research in Comparative and International Education, v3 n2 p211-221 2008
Egalitarian and participation-oriented teaching emphasizes critical discussion and informal relationships between students and professors. The authors argue that the use of egalitarian and some aspects of participation-oriented teaching at business schools differs systematically across countries according to the strength of democratic culture. Countries with high levels of well-being, strong emancipatory and civic values as well as a stable political democracy also tend to have egalitarian and, to some extent, participation-oriented teaching at their business schools. The article draws on survey data collected at Copenhagen Business School and macro-sociological data from a number of publicly available databases. (Contains 1 figure and 6 tables.)
