Making Global MBAs : The Culture of Business and the Business of Culture Paperback / softback

Part of the Malinowski Monographs series

Description

A generation of aspiring business managers has been taught to see a world of difference as a world of opportunity.

Identifying such managerial business subjects as unique indices of the shifting ground delineating the cultural and the global, Andrew Orta provocatively examines the current industry standard of business school curricula--to develop crosscultural and international competence in preparation for a career in which "all business is global." Based on years of field research at a set of leading business programs, this groundbreaking ethnography shows how the cultural production of MBAs can serve as a window onto American understandings of contemporary capitalism in the context of globalization.

Making Global MBAs is an essential guide for both prospective managers and anyone interested in the social life of business students.
