Call for Applications - British Academy of Management Educational Practice Award 2017

20th June 2017

We are delighted to announce this call for The British Academy of Management Education Practice Award. This award, now in its second year, is designed to recognise individual or team initiatives that enhance management learning and education.

The British Academy of Management is the leading authority in the academic field of management in the UK, supporting and representing the community of scholars and engaging with international peers. A Management, Knowledge & Education (MKE) initiative has been established to support BAM members through its web-based portal, capacity building programme of events, small grants scheme, and this new Education Practice Award.

We welcome accounts of inspiring and impactful management education practice that are informed by reflection on context and theories of learning and pedagogical development. Most importantly, we are keen to support the sharing of that practice amongst the BAM community and create a critical mass of significant and imaginative practice.

A shortlist of applicants will be drawn up by means of an anonymous peer review process. A panel including Business and Management School Deans will evaluate the final shortlist. We see this as the first step in disseminating good practice.

The prize winner/s will receive a plaque and public conferment of the award during the BAM annual conference. Winners will be invited to disseminate their practice by hosting a capacity building event, and posting material related to the initiative on the MKE portal that is available to the network of 2,000 international BAM members. There will also be support to develop the work for publication.

All applicants must be members of the British Academy of Management (which may include the year of application). Applicants may be at any stage of their career, and may be involved in management education in a variety of ways (such as module delivery, programme coordination, or policy development) and levels, including undergraduate, postgraduate or executive education. Previous recipients of the award may not apply.


  • Clear statement of aims and key features of the initiative.

  • Insightful analysis of the context in which the initiative is located. This will include a critical evaluation of the issue being addressed by the initiative, and the influence of the subtleties of the broader situation. This might include specific disciplinary traditions, local institutional ethos and practice expectations, national educational trends, and other relevant issues.

  • Comprehensive theoretical rationale for the initiative that draws on relevant literature. Practice will be linked with sophisticated reflection on theoretical conceptions of knowledge and knowing, learning or pedagogy.

  • Robust explanation of how the approach goes beyond ‘merely good’ in its impact, in ways that is either innovative (adopts a creative or imaginative approach that is distinct from that adopted elsewhere) or excellent (displays sustained impact in inspiring/enhancing learner achievement).

  • Detailed reflection on how the intervention has enabled management knowledge or educational theory to be developed

  • Recognition of equality and diversity

Individual or team applicants may self-nominate. Two short forms should be completed and submitted online through the BAM website (see forms A and B below). One award will be made each year. The names of all those applying will be held confidential.
Potential conflicts of interest between applicants and panel members will be disclosed. Panel members will abstain from the evaluation of any applicant for whom they have potential conflicts of interest.


  • Submission deadline - Monday 7th August 2017
  • Shortlist of finalists drawn up - Monday 14th August 2017
  • Shortlisted candidates evaluated by Deans’ panel - Week commencing 14th August
  • Winner notified - Monday 28th August
