Academe Makes for Strange Bedfellows: How Continuing Education and Schools of Management Collide and Cooperate
Halfond, Jay A.; Moore, Thomas E.
Continuing Higher Education Review, v73 p81-92 Fall 2009
A significant component of continuing education involves teaching management, especially through the array of academic degree programs offered to part-time older students. In fact, the ability to offer management education is critical for the viability of continuing education. Co-existing amicably with its institution's business schools is the most important internal political challenge a continuing education enterprise faces. In this article, the authors explore the institutional role of management, especially the conflict between business and continuing education schools; the role of accreditation; and case studies of Boston University, Northeastern University, Boston College, and the Arthur D. Little School of Management to highlight potential models of successful collaboration as well as business model conflicts.
