Abstract [en]

WHEN BUSINESS SCHOOLS DECIDE to internationalize their programs, they can do more than simply build campuses halfway across the globe—they can increase the potential of an entire region. At Jönköping International Business School (JIBS) in Sweden, that was our goal when we first began designing programs to train PhDs in two African nations. While many business schools recently have added global dimensions to their programs—through student and faculty exchanges, short- and long-term study abroad initiatives, and international student recruitment—we believe our model is somewhat different. At JIBS, we strive to build deep, long-term relationships between our school, our partner institutions, and all of our stakeholders. We don’t just disseminate our educational expertise; we function as both an advisor and a service provider to our partners. We believe that our model increases the long-term “economic complexity” in the nations where we operate and that we can be a critical factor in creating widespread prosperity. At JIBS we have been calling this the “Into Africa” strategic initiative.
