Practical Wisdom for Management from the spiritual and philosophical traditions

Can managers learn to be wise?


Background and objectives

EABIS and Yale University, supported by EFMD, are organising a series of international conferences on practical wisdom for management from the world’s spiritual and philosophical traditions, addressing the central question: How can we bring back the value of wisdom in management and management education? 

A special issue of the Journal of Management Development follows the conferences on each occasion. They are designed to bring together philosophers, theologians, social sciences scholars, economists, management scholars and business leaders to engage in reflection and dialogue and to find new grounding for management practice.
