Crises and scandals in the world of international management have brought a new spotlight onto how the subject is taught, studied and understood. There has been a plethora of literature on international management, but a lack of focus on how international management education (IME) can be shaped to respond to existing and future global business challenges.
The Routledge Companion to International Management Education gathers together contributors from academia, industry and university administration involved in IME, to: introduce the domain of IME; describe the emerging state in new geographical areas; discuss the major issues and debates revolving around IME; explore the linkage of technology and international management, and shed light on the future of IME. The diverse background of the contributors provides a global perspective that challenges the dominant Anglo-American view, with up-to-date specific insights originating from their indigenous view points, which has often been neglected and inadequately covered. The volume answers important questions, such as:Do we need a vision in IME? What is the current state of IME? How has IME grown in emerging market segments? What roles does technology play in its recent development?
The volume provides thought-provoking reading for educators, administrators, policy makers, human resources professionals and researchers. It will also give future international management students a glimpse of IME from a global inside-out perspective.

'This book is long overdue. There can often be a disconnect in academic management education and 'real world' issues facing companies, particulary SMEs and startups, in today's rapidly changing business environments. The invaluable wide ranging, global perspectives contained in the book will enlighten international management education practicioners everywhere.'
Oggy East, Director, Semantise Ltd
'This fresh and impressive book brings us back to a simple and crucial global truth: education is essential for management. Vital concepts such as shareholder value, sustainability and CSR require managerial teaching and training. This work brilliantly shows the state-of-the art of international management education and the need to reconsider its fundamentals, as well as providing suggestions for future directions.'
Prof. Stefano Zambon, Chair of Business Economics, University of Ferrara
'As business becomes increasingly global, the scope and quality of international management education becomes increasingly important. This outstanding collection of twenty-seven papers by top-notch scholars and practitioners provides a superb in-depth view of how the field is evolving. The book is crammed full of insights dealing with the essentials of international management education, its practice in many different parts of the world and the role of information technology (including mobile learning and social media) in changing how it is disseminated. There is also an excellent discussion of international business research, from its origin to the present and its likely future themes.'
Bernard M. Wolf, Professor Emeritus of Economics and International Business, York University, Canada
