Post-Doctoral Fellowship In Critical Management Studies

Critical Management Studies (CMS) is an approach to research that is “characterised by scepticism concerning the morality and ecological sustainability of prevailing forms of organisation” (www.cms.aom.org). Further, CMS provides a practical and scholarly platform for the critical exploration of unethical and exploitative or inequitable management practices.

Structural features of contemporary society, such as the profit imperative, patriarchy, racial inequality, and ecological irresponsibility, often encourage managers to see organizations as instruments of domination and exploitation. Driven by a shared desire to change this situation, we aim in our research, teaching, and practice to develop critical interpretations of management and society and to generate radical alternatives. Our critique seeks to connect the practical shortcomings in theories of management and managerial practices to the demands of a socially divisive and ecologically destructive system.

Monarch Postdoctoral Fellows will engage in a research project jointly decided by the student and the relevant faculty of Monarch Business School. Required output of the Fellowship program is the development and publishing of two academic articles per year: one published within the in-house Monarch Management Review with the second published in a recognized peer-reviewed journal.
