Yours internationally

Blaine, Sue (2008-08)


Almost all businesses face the issues of globalisation, whether these are breaking into foreign markets from Lesotho to Finland, competing with similar products abroad, or having to consider whether to buy components made far afield. Technology has created the imperative of a global focus. This means business schools have to give their students opportunities to learn how to deal with people whose cultural backgrounds are far removed from their own, and how to operate in starkly different business and legal environments. For the University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB) this means fostering working relationships with business schools in other countries, so that students can learn from experts in other regions and from their peers in other countries. In doing this, the business school is following a global trend – business schools across the world are increasingly training their focus on ‘internationalisation’.
