Main Article Content

Abstract

The objective of this article is to analyze academic productivism in graduate schools of management in Brazil from a multilevel perspective. First, we discuss the emergence of productivism, in addition to reflecting on the paradox between teaching and research as a manifestation of productivism. Next, we analyze this phenomenon at three levels—governmental, institutional, and individual—which may help management researchers examine their impact on productivity, working conditions, and professor well-being. Based on the presented reflections, we recommend defining academic productivism as a performative act that institutionalizes a set of actions and behaviors, characterizes social representation as an area of knowledge, delimits a system of beliefs and values
oriented to a performative culture incorporated socially into action, and affects working conditions, health, well- -being and careers of professors who are part of the community.
