This fifth volume in our book series on Research in Management Education and Development (Information Age Publishing) is devoted toward an empirical and conceptual examination of some long-standing criticisms of graduate management education. This volume also showcases a wide variety of innovative experiments in new visions of Master’s level graduate management education. We draw upon a rich array of USA and non-USA scholars and empirical sources in this volume and we are most grateful to our volume’s distinguished academic contributors for sustaining our book series aspiration to both reflect upon and shape innovative thinking and practice on important issues of management education and development.

The over-arching theme in each chapter is the need for each innovation to be integrated within the larger body of curriculum, program structures and pedagogic practices of the innovative Business School and its overall management education curriculum. Piecemeal and stand-alone versions of each innovation are seen more as pilots for early stage demonstration of the value of the innovation. Each chapter argues for a more holistic approach to embedding each innovation within the fabric of the entire business school and graduate management education enterprise. This call for holistic, integrative approaches to graduate management education is amply demonstrated in many chapters of this volume and we sincerely hope that you will find some inspiration in the forthcoming pages for furthering your own educational vision.
