Teegen, others report on globalization, business ed
Dr. Hildy Teegen, dean of the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina, is among the authors of a groundbreaking report that addresses the current wave of globalization and the changes and challenges it poses for business schools.
The report, “The Globalization of Management Education: Changing International Structures, Adaptive Strategies, and the Impact on Institutions,” was released Thursday (Feb. 10) by AACSB International (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) at a conference of business school deans in Phoenix, Ariz.
Teegen, a member of the AACSB Globalization of Management Task Force, said business schools must be prepared to meet the rising expectations on the part of business and society for graduates to have greater global competencies.
“Business schools like ours at the Darla Moore School play a critical role in preparing future business leaders to be successful in a range of institutional environments,” Teegen said. “We are fortunate to have an exceptional international business faculty to lead our efforts here [University of South Carolina]. Most schools find they struggle with globalization efforts as they lack capable faculty and professional staff who understand how to develop and deliver globally relevant curricula and how to establish and build successful partnerships with colleagues around the world.”
Teegen joined several of the report’s contributors on a panel that addressed the report’s key findings. Among these are guidelines for development and implementation of curriculum design, faculty development and the cultivation of strategic partnerships in business schools.
Also featured were Dr. Robert Bruner, dean of the Darden School of Business, University of Virginia; Dr. Arnoud De Meyer, president of Singapore Management University; and Dr. Pankaj Ghemawat, Anselmo Rubiralta Professor of Global Strategy, IESE Business School at the University of Navarra (Spain).
