Aims & Scope


Journal of Management and Business Education (JMBE) is an open access journal devoted to the publication of internationally relevant research practice-oriented articles pertaining to business education, and allied fields.

JMBE aims to make a significant scholarly contribution to the field of management and business education by disseminating original research that explores the processes involved in teaching and learning business management from any approach. Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts to shed new light on contemporary challenges in the broad domain of business education.

JMBE accepts manuscripts for evaluation written in English or Spanish. If the manuscript is submitted in a non-English language, we encourage authors to translate it to English once it is accepted.

JMBE includes work on topics relating to:

- Critical perspectives on education and its institutional development in all the business and management disciplines
- Advances in international techniques and practices for teaching
- Changes in the structure of business and management education worldwide and the changing roles of management educators
- Relationships of business and management programmes to employers needs worldwide
- Development of human capital for business management;
- Management of teaching institutions worldwide


JMBE answers to calls to bridge the gap between research and practice by facilitating communication in both directions:

From academia to practice: through rigorous and original research papers presented in a more practice-oriented language and format (research oriented to practice) as well as through state-of-the-art reviews that compile what is known about a topic in a way that is useful to practitioners and scholars (reviews).

From practice to academia: through the identification of empirical evidence that challenges existing theories or ideas (data driven insights) and through the development of new ideas based on practice but not yet sufficiently developed by the academic world (new insights). Comentaries and opinios from leading experts that explore business education are also welcome.

Connecting academia and practice: becoming a meeting-point between academia and business. 

Please visit our information page on Author Guidelines  before submitting your manuscript taking into consideration that manuscripts should be based on both academic research and be practice oriented. JMBE also welcomes contributions from different countries with different sociocultural contexts.
