The next International Management & Organisational Behaviour Teaching Society conference is hosted by Maynooth University School of Business in June 2018.
The conference brings together management educators from throughout Europe and North America, so that we can share our experience of best practices, learn from each other and build learning networks for today and into the future. The theme is broad and we welcome interactive and experiential sessions that share insights into effective (and ineffective) teaching practices and the experiences of educators.
The deadline for submitting a session for consideration is January 22nd 2018. Visit the conference website (https://mobts.org/index.php/imobts-call-for-papers) for details on the types of sessions or papers you may submit. We are very keen that the conference be led by the community of active management educators.
We would be very grateful if you might also circulate this invitation to colleagues or collaborators who you think might be interested in the conference. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or queries.
Date: Wednesday, 13 December 2017
Time: 12pm to 1pm
Venue: Eolas Meeting Room 1, First floor, Eolas Building, Maynooth University
ALL ARE WELCOME!
Since scholarly research began on whistleblowing and whistle-blowers in the early 1970s, the amount of published peer-reviewed in the field has grown steadily. Most of the research tends to follow ‘classic’ definitions of whistleblowing which understand it as containing four main elements: (1) whistle-blowers; (2) the act of whistleblowing; (3) the recipient of the whistleblowing act, and; (4) the organisation who is complained about. Most of this work (which continues to rely on quantitative or experimental studies) continues to present whistle-blowers as heroines, heroes or villains.
This seminar will discuss how a more nuanced, and encompassing definition of whistleblowing can be developed by analysing whistleblowing cases from a psychostructural perspective. In doing so it will expand how we might understand whistle-blowers and whistleblowing. It will also suggest new research avenues which were previously considered ‘settled’ or un-researchable in organisational studies of whistleblowing.
In 2008, Business & Society published Schwartz and Carroll’s description of five central frameworks that had come to dominate the field of Business & Society. Although frequently cited, there has been no empirical analysis or verification of these frameworks or inter-relationships between them. I’ve just completed a paper (which you can download here) which aims to address this by providing bibliometric data on peer-reviewed research outputs conducted on these frameworks since this article first appeared. ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ and ‘Stakeholder Management Theory’ are clearly the most researched frameworks, and ‘Sustainability’ has demonstrated significant growth over the ten years since the article was first published. ‘Business Ethics’ and (to a greater extent) ‘Corporate Citizenship’ appear to have grown less as research fields, but there may be some evidence of areas of ‘cross-over’ between fields. The limitations of this research are discussed alongside avenues and opportunities for developing deeper understanding of these business & society frameworks.
The deadline for applying for a Summer internship is this Friday at 5pm. Michael Delaney is a recent Maynooth Business & Accounting Graduate who participated in the Summer Internship Programme and went on to train in the Graduate Programme for Consulting with Deloitte. I spoke with Michael recently about the Summer Internship programme and other opportunities for Maynooth business students and graduates in Deloitte.
