We face a world in which management education, particularly MBA education, is by many assessments in crisis. We explore the ways in which two management education programs provide examples of how to address some key issues raised in many critiques. Both programs are underpinned by an emphasis on raising students' self-awareness and self-development. Using a variety of experiential and work-based creative pedagogical and logistical approaches, these programs emphasize core elements frequently overlooked in management education, including (1) reflective practices that develop awareness, the will to manage, and what some call "heart and soul;" (2) systems thinking, integration, and understanding of how to work effectively in today's globalized world; and (3) application of these attributes to understanding and implementing the broad responsibilities, purposes, and (ethical) values associated with businesses and other organizations. We explore how these programs contend with some of the many critiques raised against management education and discuss obstacles to the implementation of solutions that ensure management education's survival.
