Abstract [en]

This article discusses the globalization of Business Schools and presents different strategies, issues and perspectives on how and why business schools are going global. This article explores various models for globalization, contrasts and integrates them, and then presents an approach to globalization that is within the reach of these smaller and less endowed schools. Design/methodology/approach - This paper reviews relevant literature and an analysis of exchange programs amongst the world’s leading business schools. Different aspects of the globalization of management education are discussed including internationalizing the curriculum, globalizing research agendas, and the impact of globalized competition. Findings - A framework has been developed that can be employed by business schools – especially in emerging economies – to internationalize themselves through their education and research programs. Recommendations are made for how business schools with limited resources can meet the challenge of offering the internationally oriented education experience increasingly demanded by employers and students alike.Research limitations/implications - Limitations to this paper results from the use of Financial Times top one-hundred ranked business schools. Aside from weaknesses inherent the rankings methodology, the choice of these business schools excluded hundreds of high quality business schools around the world – many of which are internationally recognized for quality. Furthermore the methodology of the scanning of websites of schools for types of collaboration agreements across borders might not give the full picture of agreements betweens schools. Practical implications - Originality/value - Although a considerable amount has been written about the globalization imperative facing business schools (with many illustrations of what could be considered best practice), there is a significant lack of information when it comes to the articulation of strategies and implementation challenges facing smaller and less well endowed business schools that want to globalize.
