thanks for raising your point about international collaboration Sam.  I am putting together a presentation on this idea where we come together (educators, researchers and practitioners) in a virtual space to share resources.  Particularly pertinent for those of us working in the Middle East, Africa and other international locations to work together so that 'global' does not just replicate 'western' perspectives/attitudes/resources.
List serves help for this sharing BUT/AND we can go further:

I'd appreciate peoples' comments on what the concept of a global community (global university) could 'look like'?

Dear Nnamdi, 
That was certainly a clear case of editing blunder, many still think Dubai is a country and Chicago is a state in the U.S. 
International Business is broad and include a wide range of issues far away from our geographical locations, international collaborative editing and cross checking of facts will help especially on issues of Africa, Asia and Latin America, the stereotype approach and bundling Africa as one country among individual countries must stop. 

Kudos to your smart students.

Dear Colleagues, 


I was going to use the subject "Just when you thought they weren't paying attention," but decided against it. 


My normally detached students have brought up, at different times in the last week, some serious flaw in what many see as a key IB text - i.e. Griffin, R., and Pustay, M. (2013) International Business. Harlow, England: Pearson. Global Edition. 


The key contention relates to Map 4.4 entitled "A synthesis of country clusters" (see p. 126) where Arab Clusters included both Abu Dhabi and the United Arab Emirates. Surprise, surprise, Qatar was clearly left out. 


Just after class today, another student suggested that Griffin and Pustay might have lifted the clustering without checking the facts, from Ronen and Shenkar (1985) paper in the Academy of Management Review , Vol. 10(3) where upon checking this out I quite agreed because the evidence is on p. 445 of this seminal article. 


I need to get back to my students after your responses have been received. 


Cheers, 
Nnamdi
