Internationalisation of the curriculum (IOC) is a major issue for administrators, students, policy makers and academics in the higher education. Though this concept is important, it is not yet clear that what internationalisation of the curriculum means? or how should be implemented in the near future? IOC is a "process of integrating an internationalisation/intercultural dimension into the teaching, research and service functions of the university" (Knight & de Wit, 1997:2). IOC involves the development of new skills, knowledge and attitudes among staff and students. A large number of foreign students on campus exposes domestic students to foreign people and cultures. Therefore, an important component of internationalizing students may be a well organized study abroad program. The establishment of partnerships with overseas business schools is another powerful tool to increase the global orientation of business education. Internationalisation of the university curriculum is as much about who teaches and how as it is about what we teach (Leask, 2001). Overseas linkages can take several forms, from student exchange programs to common business education and degree programs. Which form a school adopts often depends on its need, size, mission, and aspiration. The globalization of business demands that business schools internationalize their curricula. The findings of Anand and Rudell (2002) and Tyagi (2001) illustrated that business schools that have internationalized their programs have attempted to raise levels of awareness, understanding, or competency, depending on institutional commitment and available resources. The aim and objective of this research is to investigate and examine How do academics and students experience internationalisation of the curriculum? This study is based on an empirical research method because an intervention would take place, with the participant observations and views gathered pre and post intervention from academics and the students however, there will be no control group for comparison purpose.
