Abstract and Keywords
This article focuses on critical management education (CME), which, in the last fifteen years, has emerged as one of the models/patterns of practices available today in ‘management education’ (ME). ME is the institutional/practical arena of education that comprises an array of courses and programs within universities and, in particular, business schools. ‘Education’, for and of management, is widespread in secondary education, vocational courses, management development, and, more broadly, institutional, situated, and informal practices of ‘management learning’. ME is predominantly focused on education in business schools. The article aims to discuss CME and reflects upon its significance for/in critical management studies. The critical discussion of CME mobilizes two metaphors that are apt to this task.
