2SELF-CONCEPT 2 
The Impact of Academic Self-Concept onAcademic Achievement
Business schools and faculty are concernedabout designing educational processes that
enhance student’s learning (Bennett, 2003; Page
& Mukherjee, 2000),while developing criticalbeings that manage complexity, uncertainty,equivocality and value conflicts (Dehler, Welsh,
& Lewis, 2001). “Raising student’s level of understanding” (Bartunek, 1983, p. 45), i.e.
connecting a critical perspective to content,requires the development of critical thinking skills(Braun, 2004), namely creative and other thingsthat are very important to consider when writing 
Formatting: Body of text In-text Citations

(Author’s last name, Year of publication, p. #)
 ii.
