Hosted by Tomas Hult, this segment of the globalEDGE Business Beat focuses on internationalization at the nation’s community colleges.
The 2019 Benchmarking Report on International Business Education at Community Colleges was released in January 2019 by MSU’s International Business Center. The report provides an assessment of current internationalization efforts at community colleges and efforts that need to be planned to ensure that the US stays internationally competitive in workforce development.
The 2019 benchmark shows an increase in internationalization optimism on community college campuses and in programming. The expectation is that community colleges will internationalize 24 percent of their programs and activities by 2029. Importantly, at 11 percent today, community colleges have made significant strategic strides to internationalize their programming in the last decade, up from about 4 percent internationalization in 2009. The 16-page 2019 Benchmarking Report can be downloaded free at global.broad.msu.edu/ibc/research and a presentation of the results and implications can be found at YouTube.com/TomasHult.
