The Uses of Theory In Management Education

Andrew Gonzalez

Discipline: Economics, Business



What a school does best is to discuss principles and to summarize the state of knowledge in a particular discipline. Thus, a school does well in explaining concepts and principles of economics, commercial law, and human behavior. Schools likewise develop cognitive skills well: analysis, synthesis, extrapolation, listening creatively, and writing, reading, communicating, bookkeeping, and analyzing financial statements are the métiers of schools.


Hence, a business and economics review such as the DLSU Business and Economics Review, written by the faculty and students of De La Salle, must of necessity remain in the realm of the theoretical, of principles and concepts and their predictive as well as experiential applications.
