The theme for this year’s ACBSP Global Conference is “Global Collaboration: Reducing the Distance Through Innovation.” More businesses of all sizes, whether domestic or international, are now operating with team members located all over the world, collaborating virtually thanks to new digital tools. This new paradigm means that not only will all business students need to understand global business, they will also need to do it more directly and concretely – while experiencing first-hand the international collaboration requirements.

Topics that might be a focus of presentations include:

  • Cross-institutions global academic curriculum management development
  • Short-term study abroad offerings as part of an international business course
  • Virtual international business project collaborations for multi-institution students
  • Global international internships
  • New forms of students/faculty exchanges
  • Hybrid program delivery, connecting students through technology
