Questioning certainty : cross-cultural experiences of the Master of Business Administration

Siemensma, Frances M (2001) Questioning certainty : cross-cultural experiences of the Master of Business Administration. PhD thesis, Victoria University of Technology.

Abstract

The Master of Business Administration has a reputation for enhancing management careers. This thesis examines contrasting perspectives on the way in which it is perceived. Such contrasting perspectives provided a way to examine and analyse the values evoked through the MBA experience. The thesis employs a cross-disciplinary approach including ethnography, cultural, post-colonial and feminist studies. The findings of the thesis should assist those who plan, market and implement management programs for Australian and international students.
