Responsible Research in Business and Management

During the last 2 EURAM conferences in Warsaw and in Paris, the Academy explored the future of management education in Europe through the eyes of many foresightful scholars. This plenary continues that exploration by examining the ideas and proposals in the White paper produced by an international group of academic Presidents, past Presidents, Deans and authors on the topic, who have examined what Responsible Research in Business and Management might look like in the future. Their two year project was supported by the accreditation agencies EQUIS and AACSB. The proposals in the White Paper will challenge our thinking about how we do business in our profession and, if adopted, they will alter the course of our present pathway dramatically. Will publishing in top rated journals be a thing of the past? Will the new research currency be impact? Is there just too much research of poor quality out there? This plenary brings together leading international management scholars who will present the new proposals, subject them to careful scrutiny and present their own critical view to us.
