Despite their many achievements, business schools are criticised for prioritising the achievement of outcomes, such as revenue and rankings, over the pursuit of their purpose. Acknowledging the inherent variation among the world's many business schools, most were created with some idea of enhancing the public good by nurturing the management profession and conducting related scholarship.
