"You can not train managers in a classroom! MBA programs generate a neo-aristocracy made up of people who believe they helped lead major companies simply because they have done two years of study, "says Henry Mintzberg, who teaches management for almost 30 years at McGill University where he holds the prestigious chair Cleghorn at the Faculty of administration. If it were up to him he would outlaw the management education to those who could not first gained valuable experience manager within a company and training in at least one other discipline (law, engineering, political science, etc.) together with a solid general culture. This radical position seems provocative from a teacher. However, theorists, managers and executives of large companies agree that the observations and conclusions of Henry Mintzberg have literally shaken the basic concepts of management and are now become references.
