Global Curriculum Businesses Growth Sustainable Coexistence

Abstract

Business schools all over the world produce professionals in the categories of job seekers and job providers. In the wide spectrum of businesses and job markets, we come across either the employers or the employees; both are educated and groomed in the business schools. We understand that every profession has its own language of terminologies, slangs and even the gestures; like if you see two doctors discussing a disease, it is difficult to follow the meanings they attach to different phrases. Similar is the case of other professions, may it be agriculture, farming, business, trade or linguistics; all have own passion of words.

On the other hand, if we look at the history of human conflicts leading to wars and culminating at utter devastations; a sensible man would hardly find any plausible reason for that. Mostly, these got initiated on egos, lack of communication, language and gestures. For 4-5 decades, there has been gradual rise in establishing business schools and producing professionals in millions every year in developed as well as developing countries. These business schools have different standards of education and grooming for the young minds. Once these graduates join different organizations and interact with each other, initially appear alien, however with the passage of time, they develop co-work-ships.

In todays’ world, we find business graduates as heads of multinational firms, national business setups, political parties, bureaucracies, public sector functionaries and even the state leaderships. The point is that if we develop a kind of global curriculum for business schools and internalize these institutions, we would be producing the graduates who know each-other before starting their practical lives. Having common curriculum to a larger extent (not necessarily 100%) and achieving reasonable circulation of students among business schools, we would actually be attaining leadership of common understanding and language.

Resultantly, it would help attaining global peace and harmony in the diversified world of today which is the basic purpose of this paper. The research paper is focused at developing an understanding of common curriculum in some doable form among business schools and grooming of faculty members accordingly. Ultimately, it is to produce individuals who have global perspective of business education for playing their role for peace and coexistence.
