Abstract

Different management training could assist the transformation of Chinese businesses. There is a dearth of studies on post-experience management education and training in China. This may be because it is often difficult to generate primary data from the Peoples' Republic of China. It may also be because Chinese post-experience management education and training is the product of a myriad of forces that render it a particularly complex area of study. However, despite the complexity, it is an important area of research in view of the fact that China's modernisation programme has given rise to a pressing need for a breed of manager capable of dealing with the demands of the modern business world. It would seem that post-experience management education and training has the potential to facilitate the development of the kinds of managerial competencies now needed in China. However, a preoccupation with scientific management embedded in a pedagogical model which Raelin has termed 'professional education' renders the Chinese post-experience management education and training system incapable of delivering the aforementioned competencies. Through an examination of the demand for, and supply of, post-experience management education and training in China, this paper suggests reasons for the present situation and indicates a possible future direction.
