Advocates of rubrics have claimed that the inclusion of employers in the shaping of management education rubrics can help students demonstrate to employers that they have relevant managerial skills. There is an inevitable logic to this argument. Let employers determine what they want from graduates, and academics can then design programs to produce such people. Such arguments are geared for students entering the job market rather than those already in it. In this rejoinder, we focus on whether rubrics have a role to play in postgraduate and adult learning management education. It is in this context that we wish to seed a discussion.
