    Abstract

    In recent years, globalization of businesses has occurred faster than the internationalization of business schools--in terms of faculty, students, and curriculum. Indeed, there is now a disconnect between global economic realities and the ability of business schools to produce global managers. This article discusses mission-based strategies for international business education and proposes opportunities that increase global awareness, global understanding, and global competence through student and faculty engagement and development. These changes will advance business schools' mission of producing global managers.
