Social Sciences and Globalization
· Globalization describes a process by which the world is being integrated into a worldwide diffusion of practices, the expansion of relations across continents, and the idea of organization of social life on a global scale.
· Globalization is the increased international mobility of goods, people, contracts (including financial claims and thoughts (facts, ideas, and beliefs).
· With the expansion of globalization, business and political leaders are stressing the importance of “globally competent students” upon academic institutions (McMurtrie, 2007).
· A good grasp of the social science perspectives is important for working in today’s multiethnic and multinational business environments.
