This chapter looks back over the last thirty years of the critical management education (CME) project as expressed in the UK academic literature. The UK, with its much shorter experience of business schools and with a distinct social science bias, has enjoyed many more opportunities to pursue educational approaches that disrupt and destabilise the idea of management as a disinterested skill set – especially within post-graduate programmes. The recent funding changes in UK higher education and the reliance on business schools to generate fee income for the wider institution has started to bring the UK more into line with the US, with the UK educational literature suggesting that the scope for critical content and process is narrowing. The paper explores the critical management education responses to the marketised management education system, including the growing enthusiasm for arts and humanities/management hybrid modules.
