The relegation of the importance of management schools on the continent to the background of policy is an example of the lack of political will. Those that are funded by government are starved of funds and are usually headed by political appointees who have no clue about management. ” Those that are private find themselves in trouble if the proprietors happen to belong to opposing political parties. Numerous obstacles are put in their way that could either bankrupt the school or drive it out of business.

According to Cunningham, the need for change in business and management schools’ curriculum from the traditional models is because the role and responsibilities of business are changing. She adds that even the mission and value statements reveal that there is a renewed focus on characteristics like integrity, ethics, trust, and sustainability. At the same time, external demands on businesses require that they accept a wider set of responsibilities. That idea that the sole focus of business is creating wealth for stockholders has also come under question.

These schools could help train or retrain some of these unemployed people to become entrepreneurs or find jobs with the requisite skills they acquire from management education programmes in either the public or private sector organizations. Some of these unemployed will either start their own businesses or, if they are currently working in the informal sector, they will be able to grow those businesses and formalize them with the skills they acquire from management schools.
