Globalization has profound implications for and impacts on national and
organizationalcultures, on human resource practices and human resources
management, on the organization of production and the social organization of
labour. Globalization is also having profound repercussions foreducation in the
broad field of business and management, including internationalization of
education markets and of curricula. Internationalization of education necessitates
the inclusion ofcultural and cross-cultural issues and perspectives both in curricula
and in management development programs. Reports in The Australian’s Higher
Education Supplement (September 15 2004) testify toconcerns both among MBA
and Executive Education directors in Australia and internationally, as well as
among national and multinational business executives, about the importance of
education andtraining in cultural awareness and cultural sensitivity. However,
much of the attention to culture in business curricula has been superficial, often
focusing on culture in an instrumental mode,simply as adding economic value to
corporations. There is a need for critical, research-grounded approaches to culture,
yet, at the same time presented in ways that are accessible to students inbusiness
fields. This paper outlines theoretical issues and debates around culture in the
business curriculum. It then draws upon Australian and international examples of
approaches to and usesof culture in business education, and compares methods of
instruction and management development focusing on culture, in order to illustrate
innovative practices and new directions.
