Faculty Retention factors at European Business Schools. How Deans and Faculty Perceptions Differ
AbstractDevelopments in the management education environment present business schools with several challenges. Among these, perhaps the most important to address relates to a mission-critical resource for business schools: faculty retention. In this paper, we position and examine this problem within the context of business schools. We present the results of a research project on faculty retention that was conducted in 2003-2004 among European business school faculty and deans. The results identify the most important factors for faculty retention and suggest that there are perception gaps between faculty and deans on these factors that could lead to distorted decision-making and suboptimal resource allocation.
