Internationalizing Graduate-Level Business Curricula.
This paper discusses contemporary issues concerning the internationalization of graduate-level business curricula. It examines the consensus within international consortia of universities concerning a curriculum in international business, focusing on the need for internationalizing the business curriculum, the benefits to developing nations, the extent of business schools' participation in international consortia, examples of successful consortia, and the characteristics of successful consortia. The paper then addresses the role of accreditation in achieving quality in global education systems, focusing on the accreditation process, regional accreditation and quality, and specialized accreditation. It goes on to review curriculum development guidelines for university business programs, focusing on accrediting bodies' criteria for business curriculum development, quality and continuous improvement in the business curriculum development process, and the role of the Centers for International Business Education and Research in developing curriculum. Finally, the paper examines the reconciliation of the diversity/conformance paradox in international business school curriculum. (Contains 32 references.) (MDM)
