Overview

It is time for business and academia to work together to define the requisite skill set needed to produce effective managers for the international marketplace. In the domain of information technology, it is essential that institutions adopt a cross-functional approach that provides a curriculum content that addresses real-world situations in a global setting.

This book demonstrates the strength of combining resources by pooling the knowledge and experience of an international collection of experts from industry and academia. Successful educational programs strive to create beneficial links between their institutions, international corporations and non-domestic academic institutions. Learning to work together toward a common goal is the future of international information technology.

"This book should prove to be of immense help to any department that is in the process of rethinking its course offerings, and I would hope that someone in the AACSB picks up a copy to update their thinking. Global Information Technology Education contains many key ideas which can be profitably used in any presentation calling for reform of the MIS curricula.. The data needed to make a convincing case will be found herein." --Journal of Global Information Management, Fall, 1993.
