Vice Chair of Management, Knowledge and Education
Welcome to the Management Knowledge and Education (MKE) community page of the British Academy of Management.
MKE is a new group in BAM and the role of Vice Chair for MKE has been specifically developed to support and advance the creation and circulation of innovative and transformative scholarly and practice-based activities that will enable our community to achieve excellence in teaching and learning as well as scholarly activities in the field of management knowledge and education. MKE sees teaching and learning as core to the valuable activities and varied practices of scholarship.
The MKE initiative sets out to support our members community in effectively performing management education and management knowledge generation as well as creating a forum where researching and representing scholarly activities within the field can be promoted, developed and innovated.
The objectives of the MKE group is threefold:
- To generate and support capacity building activities for those involved in teaching and management knowledge generation activities
- To foster and promote excellent research that deepens and broadens our understanding of management knowledge, knowing, education and learning
- To create a community of interest around the development of understanding and practice of MKE
MKE sets out to support the full range of scholarly activities associated with management knowledge and education; from traditional teaching practices to more novel and innovative learning settings for the generation of management knowledge and education. In such settings the lines between MKE and research can become blurred and offer new spaces for innovation and change in educational and management practices. By supporting community activities in teaching and learning, creating resources for excellent scholarly research and a space where a vibrant community can connect, share experiences, best practices, and develop new ideas, we hope to be a generative part of the next wave of innovation in the field.
MKE Members' Resources Portal
The MKE Resource Portal is a platform where those researching and practicing management education can share and access materials or contribute to discussions related to the pedagogical development of the field, helping us as a community, explore and generate innovative and progressive teaching practice. It is designed to support a community of management education practitioners and scholars in the broad area of Management Knowledge and Education.

SIGs have long played an important role at BAM in supporting, organising and generating MKE activities and we very much intend for that to continue. MKE will support and foster these activities as well as creating a gateway for connections across SIGs for specific MKE activities, where we see exciting and inspiring opportunities for collaboration.
