No More Silos! (Part 3)

Universities in an International Era.

Van Wood, Philip Morris Chair in International Business at Virginia Commonwealth University, believes that universities either need to be globalizing, or will become irrelevant. Vision and purpose matter, where faculty champions make international success happen both through their entrepreneurship and their willingness to develop partnerships and alliances

Professor Frank Franzak, of Virginia Commonwealth University who specializes in global marketing strategy, believes that in order for a globalization effort to succeed, a university must secure faculty buy-in. However, it’s difficult to sustain a long-term effort because of changes in the needs and lifestyles of individuals driving programs. Universities must learn from observations through the ongoing capturing and analysis of data.

  1. Exceptional post however I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this
    topic? I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit further.

  2. After looking at a few of the blog articles on your site,
    I really like your technique of writing a blog.
    I saved it to my bookmark website list and will be checking back in the
    near future. Please visit my website as well and tell me what you think.

  3. Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you
    using for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at
    alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you
    could point me in the direction of a good platform.
