Early Emergence of European Management Education in the 18th and 19th centuries
Call for paper
For the first time, the AHMO Conference will held a special track that invites to go Beyond the Managerial Utopia of American Schools of Business Administration and study the Early Emergence of European Management Education in the 18th and 19th centuries.
This special track invites new thinking and empirical findings on 18th and 19th century European management education that both supplement present history and facilitate broader analysis of the interplay with the now dominant US model. In line with the main scientific orientation of the 21st AHMO conference, contributions could, for instance, investigate two main issues:
1) Could 18th-19th century European management education have offered a managerial utopia alternative to the American model?
2) How was early European management education institutionalized? Were there gaps between the ideals presented and the institutionalisation process in practice?
Contributors are expected to submit their papers to the co-organizers: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org by January 5th, 2016 and will be noticed of acceptance by January 15th, 2016.
The track will be held on March 18th during the 21st JHMO at UTBM Sevenans (Territoire de Belfort), FRANCE.
