Building Global Competencies
The twenty–first century is about change, very rapid change. The world now changes more in a decade than it once did in a millennium. Such an exponential change means an unprecedented rate of obsolescence of almost every thing we teach and learn. The mantra for survival and growth is adaptation to change. We understand this most important urgent need. A look at our dynamic approach in the pursuit of excellence, be it in our curriculum development, teaching and learning methodologies, and executive management Programmes, research and consultancy programmes will convince the most skeptical observer.
The twenty–first century is also about globalization. While a lot about it is being written and discussed widely, many have not got the big picture yet. While not claiming any mastery on the subject, are certainly clear about one thing. We have got the big picture. We know what it takes to win in the emerging global market place. You need to be globally competent to succeed in the global market place. And global market place is not just international markets. Globalization is slowly but surely erasing the borders and boundaries between domestic and foreign markets. Whether you are competing in international markets or not, you are competing globally, because international brands are competing with your brands on the shelves of your departmental stores, hypermarkets, malls in your very own domestic market. That’s why global competencies are mandatory irrespective of whether you compete internationally or not.
