The crisis management field has matured into a vibrant area of scholarship and teaching. This special issue of the Journal of Management Education takes stock of where we stand with respect to the teaching of crisis management. In her call for papers, the guest editor poses many challenging questions. Having studied crises for the past 25 years, the authors thought it would be useful to reflect on their own personal answers to these questions. They explore definitions of crisis, translate research on crises into skills and knowledge for students, and draw crisis management lessons from other disciplines. The authors discuss how to teach crisis management in a stand-alone course and how to integrate it into other areas of study, and emphasize the development of students' cultural sensitivity and emotional and experiential learning, as well as their conceptual understanding regarding crises.
