The genesis of modern business and management education owes much to the Urwick Committee’s report in 1945 (Argles 1964). Bryan (2009) suggests that the critical few lines in the Urwick Report were: “A valid distinction cannot be drawn between the study of management for one purpose rather than for another, nor is there anything new in the suggestion that management should be the subject of theoretical study.”
