Challenges towards Promoting, Organizing and Conducting International Business and Management Education at Graduate level in Emerging Developing Economies: A practitioner’s perspective
University education in emerging economies at graduate level, during the last two decades, had started to pay attention to the field of economics and business management training. Today, just as happened half a century ago in universities of developed countries, most universities of good repute and popularity in the younger developing and emerging economies are beginning to have business specialization more popular than all other academic disciplines in their university. However, most of these academic institutions, are nevertheless still conducting their courses in the mother tongue of the specific nation where they are located.The present author had the privilege to have worked first hand for some 25 years in business world globally before retiring to the academic arena for more than a decade to teach and implement programs for international business and management education in Thailand. Particularly during the last 3 years, there were many opportunities that were worked on for collaboration and networking with different universities in the southeast Asian region towards organizing graduate level International business education in these emerging and developing nations. This presentation introduces the many challenges faced over the years in those environment.
