This annual lecture explores the interaction between business, 教育与社会责任, an area pioneered by Alliance MBS’ founding Director Professor Grigor Mclelland
The Grigor麦克勒兰德 Lecture series was introduced in our 50th Anniversary year in 2015 in honour of the School’s founding Director, Grigor麦克勒兰德教授.
During his twelve years as Director and Professor of Business Administration at 澳门太阳集团 Business School, Grigor shaped management and education for the next generation. He was a strong advocate of the principle that business cannot be divorced from society and that managers should be ethical and socially responsible.
威廉·格里戈尔·麦克利兰教授, CBE DCL MA 工商管理硕士 (1922-2013) was appointed Director of the new 澳门太阳集团 Business School in September 1965.
格里戈尔毕业于贝利奥尔学院, 他是牛津大学哲学系的一等学位, 1949年的政治和经济.
He became Managing Director of his family business, 盖茨黑德的劳斯商店, and then returned to Oxford in 1957 to carry out further study into retailing. He later became Oxford’s first 研究 Fellow in Management Studies in 1962, 同时保持他在家族企业中的地位.
During his 12 years as Director and Professor of Business Administration at 澳门太阳集团 Business School (1965-1977), he shaped management education for the next generation, insisting that business could not be divorced from society; that managers should be ethical and socially responsible; and that the purpose of effective management was to create more prosperity and jobs.
Grigor led the School in an innovative approach to management education which became known as the 澳门太阳集团 Experiment – or 澳门太阳集团的方法. A key feature of this approach was an emphasis on ‘learning-by-doing’, such as detailed case studies of real businesses and live company projects. This remains engrained in 澳门太阳集团商学院’s approach to learning to this day.
