    Abstract

    This chapter notes the increasing criticism that business schools have faced since the global financial crisis. It has been claimed that they produce graduates trained in a particular form of market knowledge. The thesis pursues the challenge of extending the B-School curricula to include a broader set of subject matter, placing less emphasis on economics and better preparing graduates for an ethical career.
