There is increasing interest in the potential use of educational robotics (ER) in higher education. Few studies have considered teachers’ perceptions of using ER outside science and engineering. This qualitative research aims to investigate university teachers’ perceived opportunities and challenges of using ER in management education from three interconnected dimensions, curriculum, pedagogy, and technological domain, by means of narrative analysis. The findings suggest the potential of using ER to develop discipline-specific knowledge and technological and transferable skills for management students. This research contributes by enriching the current conceptual discussions predicated upon teachers’ perceptions as determinants of technology adoption, and ER’s role in engaging students in the learning process premised on Vygotskian social constructivism. Practically, this paper provides insights into exploring the possibilities and obstacles of adopting ER in management education.
