Business schools are institutions which, a decade after the financial crash, continue to act as loudspeakers for neoliberal capitalism with all its injustices and planetary consequences.
Little seems to have changed, according to Martin Parker. Hence Parker argues in his new book that business schools need to be shut down.
Parker will talk about his new book and Andre Spicer, also a professor at a business school, will give a response before opening to the floor for discussion.
Following the formal proceedings, there will be a wine reception and a chance for further discussion.
Martin Parker has taught at business schools since 1995, including at Warwick, Leicester and Keele Universities. He is currently Professor at the Department of Management, University of Bristol. He is the co-author of Fighting Corporate Abuse (Pluto, 2014).
André Spicer is Professor of Organisational Behaviour at Cass Business School, City University, London, known for his thought leadership in the areas of the human side of work, leadership and ethics. He is widely published in both academic literature and the general business media and is a frequent commentator on sustainable business, behaviours at work and business culture.
