Abstract

German management development traditionally downplays formal business education, such as MBA programs, in developing its managers, preferring customized in-company programs. By contrast, most Australian enterprises traditionally have not developed managers beyond sending selected high-potential employees to business schools. The different emphasis on business schools versus in-company development in the two cultures is traced to their cultural views of management and education.
