This chapter examines the role of the Ford Foundation in the reform of business schools in North America. It explains that the foundation nurtured the reform of business schools by commissioning a major report, providing grants to business schools, supporting graduate fellowships and establishing prizes for business school dissertation research. It discusses the specific role of the foundation in building a “coalition,” in the articulation of a “manifesto” and in the creation of a “model.”
