Perspectives on: International Student Mobility

Foster, Monika (2016) Perspectives on: International Student Mobility. Chartered ABS Perspectives On series.

Item Type: Article


This thought piece contributes to the discussion about the value of international student mobility and how it can be enhanced within business schools through long term benefits of cross-cultural learning, given the increased pressure to provide an excellent student experience and hit TEF targets, alongside high quality research for REF. The piece is informed by the results of a study which explored the impact of students’ mobility on cross-cultural adaptation in order to produce a set of recommendations for business schools who wish to enhance their students’ outgoing, international mobility. The study is significant in that it highlights the need to consider a more reflective approach to working with students in mobility and a shift away from a mechanistic focus on systems and structures towards developing practical intercultural skills.
