This article reviews theories of management education and current coverage of corporate social responsibility (CSR) concepts in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere. It then examines prospects for responsible management education in the 21st century. It proceeds in four main sections. First, it addresses management education theories. Second, it assesses the state of knowledge concerning responsible management. Third, it examines the state of knowledge concerning education for responsible management. Views range from the impossibility of changing the moral character of adults and the uselessness of responsibility education through the identification of profit incentives for responsibility activities to demands for business schools and corporations to try harder in the wake of recent corporate scandals. Fourth, this article discusses the effect of the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business international accreditation standards on responsibility education. A concluding section summarizes the chief points.
