More than a Marriage of Convenience: The Convergence of Management and Indigenous Educational Practice
Nursey-Bray, Melissa; Haugstetter, Hilary
Journal of Management Education, v35 n1 p168-186 Feb 2011
In today's globalized world, there is an increasing imperative to operate in multiple and culturally diverse contexts. An intercultural approach to management education prepares students to work anywhere in the world. What lessons can be learned from other cultures that can enhance how managers operate in international forums? The authors seek to answer that question by reviewing the lessons learned from teaching Indigenous peoples in Australia. Using a conversational narrative, this study reflects on the understanding and incorporating of different cultural domains and knowledge systems into management education. The study concludes with suggestions for the inclusion of cultural standards for management curricula. (Contains 3 notes.)
