Historical and ideological challenges have influenced business education and steered it off the expected path. Several theoretical frameworks such as academic capitalism explain what has occurred in this profession and how academic institutions were held hostage to the capitalistic and entrepreneurial organizations that are more concerned with shareholders' wealth than stakeholders' wellbeing and welfare.
