[Authors' original abstract]

Management education is going through a period of soul searching. In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis scholars are reconsidering its content, purpose and underpinning values. The aim of this paper is to explore the experience of engaging with such concerns, specifically the question of the moral dimension of management education, in a particular United Kingdom Faculty of Business. We do so by outlining the response to a project which focused on the implementation of the United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) in the Faculty. Based on this experience, we consider the implications of what we describe as a managerialist culture for attempts to reconfigure management education through the adoption of PRME.
