In the light of the current financial crisis the task of reinventing the management profession seems to be more relevant than even before. The book is a collaborative efforts of 18 professors of different CEMS universities to create a new professional profile for management. We believe that business management should be renewed if business leaders are to uplift the financially collapsing, environmentally degrading and socially disintegrating world of our age.

The New International Manager as presented in the book is (i) a reflexive practitioner, (ii) committed to environmental sustainability, (iii) exercises social responsibility, (iv) works with sensitivity toward gender and diversity issues, (v)harmonizes information communication technologies with processes and organizational culture, (vi) applies holistic perspective in problem solving, (vii) cooperates with social and political actors, and (viii) is engaged in progressive entrepreneurship.
