Prof Piet Naudé

Academic research is important. However, there is also a need for knowledge that could be applied directly or at least quite smoothly to actual business problems. This requires a translation of theory into practice; it requires a different genre than pure academic language to ensure wider accessibility; and it requires a different form of validation from actual knowledge users instead of collegial peer reviews. This is what USB Management Review is about.

Letter from the editor

Prof Mias De Klerk

In his article, USB MBA student Jantes Prinsloo investigated the combination of integrity and vulnerability as a filter for good leadership.
