Measuring the Global Footprint of an MBA
Alon, Ilan; McAllaster, Craig M.
Journal of Studies in International Education, v13 n4 p522-540 2009
This article discusses the concept that is termed the "global footprint" as a measure of a university's internationalization efforts along multiple dimensions. A university's globalization is multidimensional and includes students, faculty, and curricula. In this article, the authors demonstrate their conceptualization of the global footprint, discuss best practices in the field, and show readers how they may want to use the authors' model to shape their internationalization strategies. In summary, they develop the global footprint model for universities, and explain this model using MBA business education as an example. (Contains 15 tables and 8 figures.)
