In producing the Monarch Management Review, the editorial staff has several goals in mind.

  • First, the Review is to be a showcase for the scholarship and research that is being produced by the faculty, students as well as guests of the business school.
  • Second, it is a place where ideas surrounding corporate social responsibility, sustainability and social issues in management can take a prominent role within the larger scope of management theory.
  • Third, the Review is to act as an example that management scholarship often must take a much wider look at issues than is normally considered within business research. That is, management is a social science which considers not simply traditional areas of business study but also areas that cross into the domains of anthropology, psychology, sociology, pure philosophy and economics, to name only a few.

In comparison to a mere twenty years ago the world of business has become increasingly global and integrated. With this globalizing trend many well held beliefs, modes and practices of traditional business have come under examination, especially when considering the imperatives and demands that a multitude of varying cultures may place on the global enterprise. And though the area of traditional business study, as it is practiced within the many business schools around the globe, seems large and diverse we are often forced to go beyond these boundaries into related but unfamiliar areas to find new and interesting theories and practices to build our understanding of the art of management and the functioning of business and enterprise.

At Monarch, professors and students are encouraged to look beyond the traditional boundaries of management science to find new and novel ways to approach issues and research. Our preferred view of the world is interdisciplinary. As expressed annually by The State of Future Report the many crises facing the planet are being seen as increasingly interconnected. Any solution will need to be so as well. Monarch believes that management scholars and practicing business leaders can make a substantial contribution to alleviating many of the ills facing the global commons. However, making that contribution means taking an integrated and ethical approach based on sound knowledge and researched practices. It is our hope that the Monarch Management Review may be viewed as making a contribution to this important task.
