Last week the HBS Working Knowledge newsletter pointed to an article called Is Business Management a Profession?. Of course it is, but what they’re really asking is whether management ought to become professionally recognized in the same way that the fields of medicine and law are recognized. The reason for the question is that the authors suppose that if management were a licensed profession, there may be fewer opportunities for unethical folks.
This doesn’t seem like an entirely bad idea to me, but I just don’t see how it can work in practice.
