Abstract

In this short piece we present some interim impressions from a study of deans and ex-deans of UK business schools. Our purpose is to explore issues of identity and authenticity in environments characterised by multiple stakeholders and competing institutional logics.

Our starting point is the observation that many UK business schools are faced with expectations from multiple stakeholders that, in aggregate, sometimes outstrip their capability to deliver. Our interest is in how deans respond to this situation.
