Differences in the effectiveness of internationalization of undergraduate business education in achieving job placement success

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We provide the results of a survey of business curriculum internationalization at AACSB member U.S. colleges and universities. Although internationalization is now pervasive, no one method of internationalization has emerged. In this study we attempt to profile differences between undergraduate international programs based on the success of the program's placement of students in internationally related jobs upon graduation. We find that schools with good placement success and those with poor placement success largely agree on the elements needed to internationalize the curriculum, although some elements of disagreement remain. Programs with poor placement have not internationalized to the same degree as institutions with better placement.
