He provides that, the phenomenal fiscal list of Asian economies in fresh a long time dramatically illustrates how very important human capital is to development. those international locations missing usual assets and uploading virtually all their strength specifications have grown quickly via hoping on a well-trained, knowledgeable and conscientious workforce.Professor Abdulai believes that Africa, too, can maintain its present progress and improvement by means of successfully combining its plentiful traditional assets with its human capital to achieve its financial improvement, yet it will require an African cadre of well-trained managers on the helm of either inner most and public region associations. For this to turn into a fact, administration schooling in Africa should play an important function, however the writer argues that it can't be powerful via regularly mimicking the West within the programmes it grants.

Example text

To find out, one has to look at the unfulfilled promise of management and business education in general. Many management experts have written on this issue. The first is Rakesh Khurana (2007). In his multiple award-winning book From Higher Aims to Hired Hands: The Social Transformation of American Business Schools and the Unfulfilled Promise of Management as a Profession, he argues that historically, university-based business schools were founded to train a professional class of managers in the mould of doctors and lawyers.

After all, when these management students graduate, most of them are going to be working in Africa. So what better way to learn than through African mistakes and successes? In fact, some of the challenges of poor management that these study tours expose students to in Africa could become projects that these students could find solutions to. They could also create entrepreneurial opportunities for some of these students. They will actually learn more about the dynamics and challenges of management and leadership in the African environment upon the completion of such projects.

Management and business schools in Africa were set up to produce elites, as mentioned earlier, not skilled managers, entrepreneurs, and leaders who will contribute to Africa’s growth and development efforts. For example, most of the graduates of the first post-colonial management schools became the district administrative officers, directors, and heads of most of the public sector institutions in their respective countries, enjoying the perks that came with the position—a car, a bungalow, a driver, a houseboy, a cook, and a garden-boy.
