The responsible management education paradox: Applying the conceptual lens of organizational ambidexterity

Abstract

This chapter explores and discusses responsible management education (RME) as a paradox. Indeed, there is a contemplation of whether it is irresponsible to deliver RME. The theory of Organisational Ambidexterity, a theory pertaining to paradox, is applied as a lens to critically reflect on progress within the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). There is a discussion of tensions that are hindering the impact of PRME and the SDGs. Ambidextrous approaches are presented as a potential consideration/solution for responsible management educators and business school practices moving forward, as well as deeper embedding of competencies for Education for Sustainable Development.
