In My Own Experience (as A Practitioner): Building Bridges Between Instructor Practitioner Experience and Their Pedagogy

When business schools seek qualified faculty, two pathways of experience are most recognizable. The traditional path requires a proper academic credential, followed by peer-reviewed research publications. An experienced-based path is consistent with Gladwell’s assertion that 10,000 hours of experience creates expertise. Despite the differences between these extremes, business schools often hire professors having a mix of original academic preparation plus real-world experience. Many business faculty join academia after years of industry experience, thus providing valuable perspectives to students. The purpose of this panel discussion is to hear from second-career business educators about how they incorporate varied experiences into management courses.
