Most management academics today are concerned with making what they teach more relevant, just as employers operating internationally seek management graduates with at least an exposure to global issues, if not actual experience. In the light of increasing globalization of business, this relevance would undoubtedly be concerned with the internationalization of management education. How to do this effectively is not a simple issue—it involves a number of dimensions, including the student body, faculty, and the method of instruction as well as what is taught. This paper adopts two diametrically opposed approaches to international business, namely those of Porter and Ohmae and contrasts the globalization of management education under these criteria. The conclusion is, not unexpectedly, that neither perspective is entirely right or wrong, but that each offers a valuable framework for the evaluation of options.
