Geopolitics and business: the implications for management education

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In this paper we identify the need for management education to incorporate a greater consideration of geopolitics. We do this by first of all noting some recent events that indicate the fundamental complex inter-connectedness of the geopolitical and the economic. We discuss some trends which underpin this (notably changes to the patterns of economic globalization and global governance, and the increased importance of the nation state), before going on to expore the prospects for continuing on-going uncertainty and volatility in the global economy. We identify areas that should be discussed with reference to the role that business plays in geopolitics, and the geopolitical plays for business. We call for an emphasis on interdisciplinarity to assist the integration of geopolitics into management education.
