Abstract

Management Education has been receiving its fair share of critique, especially since the financial crisis and other business scandals that have unveiled the immoral and unethical dispositions in the business world. Questions about what kind of responsibility is being taught in business schools, if at all, have been raised, and in which way are these values being learned? In the more subtle field of learning responsibility, relationships between people, and fundamentally, the perception of 'the other', learning through theories and concepts is not sufficient. It requires rather a practice of 'unlearning' habits that have been formed through one's experience. This is where transformative learning offers a huge opportunity in management education, and the following paper explains how this kind of learning can be beneficial for future business leaders.
