Abstract: The Whitney-Mahowald theorem gave normal Euler number $ (\bmod \,4)$ for embeddings of a closed $ 2n$-manifold in Euclidean $ 4n$-space. We generalize this theorem to embeddings of closed $ 2n$-manifolds in an oriented $ 4n$-manifold with an approach in the framework of unoriented bordism groups of maps.
