Wisdom & Flourishing Track

This research track is concerned with scholarship that aims to explain and foster wisdom and flourishing at work and in society. Thus, this track welcomes research that is guided by the question: “How can we use business and business education to create a more wise and flourishing world?” Wisdom can be defined as a form of knowing in which people (both individuals and collectives) understand, in any context, which actions or inactions will create the most good in the long run. Flourishing can be defined as living a life of dignity, love, and joy. In short, this track is for topics grounded in phronesis (i.e., practical wisdom) that advance theory while contributing to the social good.
