This is where you demonstrate your understanding of critical management studies and set out the basis of your argument. An example of how you could begin is as follows: (please do not copy this verbatim, Thank you)

expose situations of oppression, marginalisation and subjugation,   OR
question whose or what interests are being served or neglected by current Western approaches to management,    OR
champion the cause of those groups which might be disadvantaged by management.

Having made your statement about critical management studies you now have to tell the reader what it is, therefore the introduction is where you give an overview of critical management studies and how it’s linked to critical theory – you don’t need to go into too much detail but you do need to show that you understand it (synthesis is important- you only have 3,000 words, don’t waste any).
