    Three historians who work in Indian business schools have organised a webinar on the subject of whether, why, and how management history should be part of management education. Although the time zones may complicate attendance by people based in the Americas, I would strongly encourage all those who share an interest in this topic to attend this important webinar.

    Business history as a discipline has been taught in some business schools since the 1970s. However, it has only recently become more common in the curriculum in management schools across the world. A course in business history attempts to bridge the gap between management studies and humanities, enabling an interdisciplinary approach to business studies.

    In this webinar, we will discuss the following questions: What is business history? Why is it relevant for management education in India? How should we teach it? What can history teach us about business management in the contemporary world?

    The webinar will be of interest to students and educators in management and in history.
