BAM welcomes New British Academy report, “Business and Management Provision in UK Higher Education”

Today, 28th April 2021, the British Academy has published a report on the health of our discipline, which educates a very large - and growing - proportion of students in the UK, contributing to the skills and knowledge required for national growth.

The British Academy of Management (BAM) welcomes this important report by the British Academy. Professor Katy Mason FBAM, Chair of BAM, and member of the Report’s steering group said, “It has been a pleasure to work with the British Academy on this important report that outlines the scale and extent of Higher Education in Business and Management. Our discipline is flourishing and is a pivotal point for interdisciplinary activity. Management research has a great deal to offer our communities, both locally and nationally, and is poised to play a significant role in the UK’s recovery from the Covid pandemic. As the leading community for management scholars, with 2000 members in the UK and around the world, BAM wishes to offer its expertise and insight to supporting that effort.”

The new report makes reference to the findings of BAM’s own research project on Equality, Diversity, Inclusivity & Respect in Business & Management Higher Education Institutions, which are presented in the interim report available to download from the BAM website at: https://www.bam.ac.uk/asset/D0A54930-9DCB-4AEA-BADE2706AF1B03C1/
