Designing IB Curricula for Future Global Careerists: A Boundaryless Career Perspective
Suutari, Vesa; Smale, Adam
Journal of Teaching in International Business, v19 n2 p167-191 Jun 2008
New career realities appear to be reshaping the necessary tools, skills and attitudes individuals must possess in order to establish a successful career in the international business arena. In particular, the boundaryless career perspective provides an interesting point of departure from which to analyze the kinds of competences future global careerists will need to become masters their own careers. Accordingly, this article presents the main arguments behind boundaryless career theory and discusses them in light of the extant literature on international careers. Based on this discussion the paper goes on to spell out the implications of the boundaryless career for IB curricula design, suggesting ways in which they can help IB students--the future global careerists--accumulate valuable career capital prior to embarking on their international career paths.
