Abstract

Research on globalization has determined travel executives’ perceptions of the psychological implications brought about by an interconnected global environment and the implications on international education. With the concepts of Clyne and Rizvi (1998) and Pittaway, Ferguson, and Breen (1998) on the value of cross-cultural interaction as a framework for international learning, the study has explored strategies by which international education may be nurtured in a globalizing environment.

The globalized environment has affected business in a way that it has re-shaped cross-border interactions. This new landscape has provided the potential to affect the individual’s psyche and opened new avenues towards the delivery of innovative international learning approaches.
