Young-Ferris, Anna; Voola, Ranjit – Journal of Management Education, 2023
We explore privilege and its systemic intertwining with management education curricula.

In an attempt to tackle this, we provide a single case study of…

Since 1988, Vietnam's private higher education sector has developed into an integral part of the higher education system.
