We are living in the “Era of Globalization”. Globalisation is not a synonym of Global business, but it is more than that. Globalisation poses variety of complex trends in the economic, social and cultural fabrics of all societies.We live in an intensely interdependent world in which all immense differences of culture and historical experience are compressed together in instant communication. The international transactions in services are defined as the economic output of intangible commodities that may be produced, transferred and consumed at the same time. Traditionally services are viewed as domestic activities due to direct contact between producer and consumer and government monopoly in infrastructure sector. The emerging digitization concept has altered this perception. The ascent of information and communication technology has given rise to e-commerce, e-banking, e-learning, e-medicine and e-governance. So, it is argued that government finds it increasingly difficult to cope up with technology-driven activities. Because of that Nowadays Education has turned out to be a commodity of international trade. It is no more a public good on domestic scale, but a private good on global scale. Globalization brings education to the front lines. In the prevailing discourse, education is expected to be the major tool for incorporation into the ‘knowledge society’ and the technological economy. In this paper we are going to see the impact of globalization on knowledge, education systems, and equity policies. Key words: Globalisation, Indian Education, Knowledge, Society, Technology, Economy, Equity Policies, Digitization
Over thousands of years, globalization has contributed to the progress of the world through travel, trade, migration, spread of cultural influences, and dissemination of knowledge and understanding. These global interrelations have often been very productive in the advancement of different countries. Globalization is viewed by somebody as westernization. But it is not so. The decimal system emerged and became well developed in India between the second and sixth centuries; it was used by Arab mathematicians soon thereafter. These mathematical innovations reached Europe mainly in the last quarter of the tenth century and began having an impact in the early years of the last millennium, playing an important part in the scientific revolution that helped to transform Europe. The agents of globalization are neither European nor exclusively Western, nor are they necessarily linked to Western dominance. Indeed, Europe would have been a lot poorer-economically, culturally, and scientifically- had it resisted the globalization of mathematics, science, and technology at that time. And today, the same principle applies, though in the opposite direction (from West to East). And Now, Initial enthusiasm for globalization as a beneficial set of processes has yielded to an understanding that the phenomenon is largely associated with increasing social inequality within and between countries as well as instability and conflict. So at this stage, it is necessary to find the impact of globalization on Indian Economy.

IMPACT OF GLOBALIZATION ON MANAGEMENT EDUCATION – CURRICULUM TO CAREERS
The global techno –economic paradigm is changing at a pace that defies easy mapping. Emergence of global village and digital economy with internet connectivity is the order of the day. This results in fundamental changes in the way the business is organized and conducted in every functional area, globally and in India as well.
On the domestic front, India’s economic growth, in recent years, has been impressive. This has been due to conscious move towards market based economy. The imperative question is how to sustain it and if possible, better it. Sustainability is possible by spurring innovation and creativity to move up the value chain. Indian business models need to be re oriented, incorporating the newer dimensions of risk and inclusive growth. Excellence is seen in few quarters and that is not enough. Increasing complexity and consequent instability marks the emergent business environment that defies solution through traditional managerial tools. Further to have sustainability in business the role of manager is to be sensitized.
But the current curriculum and pedagogies of management education needs a paradigm shift from transaction based approach to transformative approach. Knowledge...

The Impact of Globalization on Education: Challenges & Rewards
Globalization can be considered the speedy, free movement of people, services, capital, goods, ideas and knowledge across national borders, incorporating the entire planet. It is often stated that globalization makes the world similar to a small village, with all nations, cultures, and people coming together as one finite society. Globalization is a process, which has affected many areas of human life, one of those being education. Education is directly affected by what contemporary globalization is and is becoming. This evolution of a ‘global-society’ has brought about exceptional changes in the means of generating, delivering, accessing and disseminating knowledge. ‘Technology and the fall of trade barriers have led to the integration of markets and nations, and enabled individuals, companies, and nation-states to reach around the world faster and cheaper than ever before.’ (Stewart, 2012) Additionally, there come potential intangible societal benefits of understanding and tolerance brought through integration of cultures into the globalized classroom. However, just as globalization brings the potential for great reward, it also brings great challenges,...
...The influence of globalization on education systems and education delivery is a topic that is increasingly being discussed among governments, teachers, students and communities. There are concerns on whether the education sector is benefitting from the positive effects of globalization or is it at risk from the negative impacts. This essay will argue that globalization has a vast influence oneducation systems and that there are ways in which the negative impacts of globalization can be controlled. This essay will unfold in three parts. Firstly, it will highlight the influences of globalization on education systems. Then it will discuss some positive and negative impacts of globalization on education systems. Lastly, it will suggest some ways in which the negative effects of globalization can be controlled.
“Education in the 21st century is marked by the vast influence of globalization and the drive for international comparability. In Fiji, as in the rest of the Pacific, this is no different. Education systems in the Fiji and the Pacific are characteristically informed and influenced by external push and pull factors which are reflective of globalization” (Koya, 2002)....

...IndianEducation is on the Crossroads: The role of Teacher-Education
Chaman Lal Banga, Assistant Professor (Education), Department of Education, ICDEOL, Himachal Pradesh University Shimla, Email: [email protected]
There is a view that the present system of education is, after all, quite reasonable and what we need is to make it a little more sophisticated, much more polished, with some modifications here and there like vocationalisation and job-orientation, and what we further need is to ensure accountability of teachers and educational institutions. It has even been prominently asked, in defence of the present system, if we ourselves are not the products of that astern and whether we are not, more or less, quite well-equipped deal with our responsibilities. t is noteworthy that the greatest representatives of the Indian renaissance, from Maharshi Dayananda Saraswati to Sri Aurobindo had perceived in the ancient Indian system of education such an uplifting and inspiring model that they had all advocated for free India a national system of education, rooted in the ancient Indian conception of education, which would, at the same time, cater to the ideals of internationalism and universality. They had all dreamt of a free India where students would relive the presence and guidance of the...
...Critically examine the proposition that national boundaries have been surmounted by the phenomenon of globalisation and that therefore, national governments are no longer able to promote independent economic policies.
Marxism conceived of globalization to a great extent as simply the worldwide expansion of the capitalist mode of production (Amin and Luckin 1996:225).
The global expansion of production methods and networks has resulted in a proverbial shrinking of the globe, leading analysts to argue that globalisation is constricting the capacities of states and governments to control economic policies and processes within their borders.
Baylis and Smith (1998) define globalisation as the 'intensification of worldwide social relations which link distant localities in such a way that local happenings are shaped by events occurring many miles away and vice versa.' In this essay, Globalisation is understood as a phenomenon, and a process that eases the movements of labour, services, capital and goods and information across the globe. It has evolved partly due to the trend of increasing international trade across national boundaries and the conduct of business activities in more than one country. Put simply, it is a process that involves the growth of inter-dependency between national markets and industries on a worldwide scale (Brooks, Weatherston and Wilkinson, 2011).
As globalisation progresses the status of national boundaries as obstacles to...
EFFECTS OF GLOBALIZATION
December 2, 2013
Globalization and modernization play a major role in a nation’s development. Nations such as China and Vietnam have ventured into the global economic stage in order to preserve their future . Their government’s reform laws on global manufacturing and exporting has improved their economic growth. Globalization both brings a positive and negative outcome and greatly influences the course of the nation.
In 1978 Chinas leaders reformed their economic policy in order to revitalize their stagnant economy. This had a positive effect on Chinas economic future. The reform included liberizing foreign trade and investment . This globalization event paved the way for foreign manufacturing companies to be able to operate in China. Pre 1978 life in china was plaque by poverty, famine, and income inequalities. The annual economic growth was 6 percent per year. After globalization economic growth went up to 9 % annually after 1978, and is now at an amazing 15% in the last few year( Hu & Khan, 1997). Another positive impact from globalization is the percentage of people living in poverty. As more factories were built, more jobs were created reducing the people living in poverty from 270 million during the year of 1978 to 100 million in 1985. (Wikipedia,2013)
Chinas low cost of labor has propelled the nation’s...
...1. Identify the characteristics of globalization that can be linked to education.
The characteristics of globalization that can be linked to education is that it will shape our cognitive skills, interpersonal sensibilities and cultural sophistication and will be responsive to larger transnational processes. Also, Globalization changes the ways we experience national identities and cultural belonging and with globalization’s increasing complexity necessitates a new paradigm for learning and teaching.
2. How do socio-cultural, environmental, geographical, economic, political, and equity issues affect globalization?
Due to these following factors, it affects globalization in the sense that people think differently on how they interact with other people and how they treat their environment. Through this factors, we produce greater pluralism of languages and, dialects and cultural practices.And by learning to live together we must develop an understanding of other people and an appreciation of interdependence in a spirit of respect for values of pluralism, mutual understanding and peace.
