Globalized Business Education in Uncertain Times

Dean Manual Acevedo-Jaramillo of EAFIT Business School shares insights on business education continuing to thrive in a global market even in the midst of uncertain global relationships.


Manuel Acevedo Jaramillo: [00:00] The nationalist movements that are now being seen all over the world are certainly going to slow down the globalization process of education, however, globalization is not only political. There is cultural globalization, there is economic globalization, and you cannot stop.

[00:30] The world is so much interconnected. Telecommunications technology has grown so much that you can basically connect with everyone, everywhere, every time, so that is not going to stop. It might be more difficult to travel, it might be a little bit more difficult to set up a company, it might be a little bit more difficult to export or to import, but we are now a global village.

[00:52] You have people that have established themselves in different countries for so many years, and that is not going to change. It's probably going to be a little more challenging, but that's what business schools do, face challenges.
