about

Contemporary Issues in Management Development in Africa is jointly published with the University of Ghana Business School in response to the growing importance of Africa in global business discourse. The book spans the broad areas of management development in Africaand addresses a wide variety of issues that are critical for Africa’s economic and social development, including their implications for management development. Whilst the book’s focus is on recent and contemporary development issues, it situates the discourses within historical contexts. For this, the first section of the book is on the historical review of management development in Africa; section two deals with contemporary management issues while the third section is on the policy and institutional perspectives of management development in Africa.

The book is an essential reading for students and scholars of international business, finance, economics, accounting, corporate governance and general management. It should be equally a useful guide for practitioners and policy makers alike.
