Over the past two centuries, the world’s socio-economic progression has gone through profound paradigm changes unfolding along four major development stages. Higher education has been an important part of this process. The accelerated pace of technological, socio-economic, and business innovations as well as ongoing fundamental changes in the real world call for progress in pedagogy. While modern universities have adapted in various degrees through information platforms such as Blackboard or Brightspace, video conferencing, and other technological innovations, they still commonly rely on pedagogical ideas and concepts rooted in a thoroughly pre-modern era rooted in medieval times.

Global Trends, Dynamics, and Imperatives for Strategic Development in Business Education in an Age of Disruption explores the genesis of higher education and its contemporary structure and profile in major global regions and discusses key trends, dynamics, drivers, and developmental imperatives currently shaping business education. Covering topics such as business education, online education, and strategic development, this book is essential for teachers, managers, trainers, faculty, administrators, policymakers, researchers, academicians, and students involved in studies that include industrial, economic, social, urban, innovation, legal, and policy development.
