Divergent identities ? professions, management and gender.

Miller, S. and Hagen, R. and Johnson, M. (2002) 'Divergent identities ? professions, management and gender.', Public money and management., 22 (1). pp. 25-30.


This article critically examines issues of gender in relation to the 'professionalization' of management, with particular reference to the National Health Service (NHS). It focuses on the Master of Business Administration (MBA) qualification and the role this plays in professional development of managers and clinicians. One MBA course, which has included a number of participants from the NHS and has attempted to include some recognition of gender issues, is used for illustrative purposes. The article raises important concerns about the implications of gender for NHS and other public sector professionals, and draws some conclusions about the ways in which management education might incorporate gender into the curriculum.
