Calls for the reform of MBA education are not new but this issue of change continues to generate work on how this could be undertaken. The MBA has become a site of contestation with differing agendas being played out from instrumentalist approaches that focus on the utility of the MBA as a management qualification to those that adopt a more holistic perspective. This conceptual paper sets out to make a contribution to this discourse through reference to heutagogy and how it may contribute to the development of managerial capability in an uncertain and volatile world. In doing so, this paper relates management learning to the capacity to make effective decisions within organisations. Higher Education is undergoing transformation with an increasing emphasis on learner-centred curricula. This paper contributes to this discourse on the future of learning in higher education.
