Abstract [en]

Over the past century, management education has expanded considerably, and it is important that management and organization scholars and practitioners should understand the implications of this development. With this in mind the present paper looks at management education from several perspectives. First, it discusses the characteristics of education in general and of management education in particular. Second, it provides a brief summary of the institutional development of management education, particularly in the United States and Europe. Third, the paper indicates professional exchanges and quality assessments as forces for convergence, and provides evidence of such convergence. Finally, some conclusions are offered and some possibilities are discussed regarding the future development of management education.
