This research memorandum is the transcript used in the inaugural lecture given at the University of Hull on 12th March 2007. The lecture is presented in two parts. Part I begins with an introduction to cognitive style, a psychological construct from within the domain of individual differences psychology. This is discussed in relation to its potential influence on student performance in management education. Part II focuses on more macro aspects of management education. It begins by considering the historical context of Business Schools and the ways in which management education has evolved (generally for the worse). This is followed by an evaluation of the state of management education today. Its relevance is challenged and various connections are questioned, for example, between theory & practice, management education & career success, and scholarship & management practice. Drawing on theories associated with learning, knowledge, and achievement, the lecture then moves on to argue for doing radically different things in the medium term, and for completely re-thinking the management education provision in the longer term.
