Launching the Management and Business Review

We are happy to announce the upcoming launch of a new journal, Management and Business Review (MBR).  The goal of MBR is to bridge management practice, education and research, and thereby enhance all three. 

In contrast to the Harvard Business Review (HBR), the Sloan Management Review (SMR), and the California Management Review (CMR), which are each published by a single school, MBR is the result of a grassroots initiative with a wide participation by many schools and companies.  Our editorial team includes top professors and well-published executives from these organizations.  Eleven of these organizations are also cosponsors of MBR.

The existing sources – including Harvard Business Review (HBR), Sloan Management Review (SMR), and California Management Review (CMR) – and the enormous amount of information available on the internet meet a fraction of these readers’ needs.
