Australia: Innovation & Internationalization, Understanding the International Business Environment through Innovation in Australia

Most colleges and universities are at once firmly rooted in place and yet globally connected through research and faculty and student travel. At the same time, many struggle to connect the daily work of teaching and research to international business. Inspired by their location in a small country far from many population and economic centers, some Australian universities have embraced the challenge of becoming the bridge local and global economies and communities.

On this FDIB, we will visit Flinders University at the Tonsley Innovation Precinct in Adelaide and Western Sydney University in Sydney to learn about the ways in which these universities are catalyzing innovation and internationalization by linking small regional firms to global opportunities. Both are suburban universities, and the challenges and opportunities presented, in particular in relation to a pivotal role in economic development and transformation, are being approached in unique ways.

Some of the key learning outcomes will include:

  • Meet the CEOs of numerous SME or regional firms in the midst of internationalization;
  • Experience (and contribute to) an extremely experiential innovation curriculum and teaching style;
  • Compare and contrast government (defense)-led development and globalization with community-led development and globalization;
  • Witness radical university transformation with the goal of increasing impact in local and global communities and;
  • Take significant steps towards developing a teaching case or pedagogical research project for publication.
