Business Historians at Business Schools

Business Historians at Business Schools

Business history has long been included in the curriculum of MBA and undergraduate business programs in the conviction that training in leadership requires a long-term and internationally focused view of the world. Faculty and programs in business schools around the world have made significant contributions to the development and growth of business history. Yet the culture and priorities of management training differ somewhat from those in departments of history and economics. The BHC has many members teaching in schools of management and business who work to expand the role of business history in the curriculum of their institutions. They have created an informal networking group whose members come together over lunch at the BHC annual meeting to discuss issues and concerns.
