Spring Issue 2013, Editorial by Professor Stephen Drew: On scholarly and practice academics

It is my pleasure to introduce the Spring 2013 edition of the Journal of General Management.

Over the years as a manager, consultant and then educator I have witnessed much debate as to whether management is truly a profession, and how it should conduct itself in relation to accreditation, core knowledge, qualification schemes, continuing education, standards and codes of ethics. Many professional organisations in management have standards and qualification programs, for example SHRM, CIPD and CMI. However, the academic institutions from which many of our readers come are uniquely driven by accrediting organisations such as AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS. The most widely recognised of these accrediting agencies in a global sense is the AACSB while AMBA in the UK and EQUIS in Europe adopt related but slightly differing approaches and membership within their domains. Whether or not a business school has one or more of these treasured badges of approval can drastically influence reputation, student applications and financial viability. Changes are underway at the AACSB whose International Blue Ribbon Committee (BRC) on accreditation quality has drafted revised standards, the first in ten years, which were released at the recent AACSB International Conference in Chicago. These standards will not only shape MBA programs and management education in future, but also the careers of academics in business schools across the world, and especially in North America.
