Contesting Institutional Hegemony in Today's Business Schools: Doctoral Students Speak Out

Contesting Institutional Hegemony in Today's Business Schools: Doctoral Students Speak Out.

Editor:

Ajnesh Prasad, EGADE Business School, Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education, Mexico


Synopsis:

By bringing together a group of critically-orientated early career researchers from global business schools, this book investigates a series of timely questions relating to the impact that institutional pressures have on junior academics - particularly those who conduct critical or non-mainstream research, such as:

  • What is the nature of the institutional pressure that is placed upon doctoral students to publish in certain journals or conduct positivist research?
  • How do students with a critical orientation resist these pressures- or why do they
  • succumb to them?
  • What are the implications on critical scholars for resisting or complying to these pressures and what does this mean for scholarship more broadly?

Contesting Institutional Hegemony in Today's Business Schools: Doctoral Students Speak Out takes a narrative approach and is required reading for all doctoral students as well as those in academia dissatisfied with the current intellectual hegemony in business schools.
