The purpose of this paper is to reiterate the importance of the inclusion of values in management education. It browses through literature and analyses the causes of failure of management education put forward by researchers over the years with special emphasis on management education curriculum. While the lethargy with which changes are being brought to the said curriculum is acknowledged, the paper explores the absence of soft skills generation through management education curriculum and explains the extent to which this is leading to the downfall of the quality of graduates being produced by universities. To conclude, the paper shows how the concept of values although found to be lacking in management education curriculum is not being given due consideration as far as its inclusion in the curriculum of business schools is concerned.
