Students graduating from college within the next few years need to make a significant effort to include several areas that will be conducive to their success in the business world. Not only are students competing with their counterparts in the U.S. but competition in the international arena as well. It is not just about a student?s GPA, class ranking, GMAT score, school they attended, internships, college business connections or college organizations involvement. These are well oriented in their place; but it is the adaptation of educating students to meet global needs for their organizations or businesses. These skills will become crucial and should not be limited to the paucity of any business schools? cognitive thinking process.
Students should be well diversified in global business antics, local culture, social, political and intra relationships to different cultures in order to become movers and shakers of the international business unit. The theories, practicum?s and ideas must not only be instructed in classes, but should be practiced and students should take the initiative to attend seminars, workshops and additional training classes to be well rounded, prepared and grounded in the culture in which they will be working for or with. An onsite atmosphere or environmental group of the culture is a starting point in providing the significant labor of that culture. Professors and the schools play a critical role in the developmental stages for students to compete on a global stage by helping to provide the tools for universal success.
