The goal of MBR is to publish papers that improve the practice of management. We seek business scholars’ work that translates academic research into practical insights for managers. We seek managers’ perspectives which will inspire conversation and research. We encourage the educational use of MBR articles by permitting degree programs to use them without paying royalty. We hope that by bridging management practice, research, and education MBR will empower all three, forging closer bonds between us..

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