MBA and HCM Application for the Global Advancement and Industries

MBA and HCM Application for the Global Advancement and Industries

            Globalization is a huge part of the modern industry arrangements. Understandably, it could be observed that this particular system in the modern society is actually the basis of progress at present. However, a question arises with regards this particular matter: Are every kind of social sector prepared for the said process of progression brought about by the systems of globalization?  This is the reason why the assessment of the HCM program of a university is to be presented in this paper. The main aim of the discussion is to actually handle the different aspects of operations that the educational institutions offering the HCM program to the present students of a globalized society actually face everyday.

            According to the article “Redefining Global strategy” written by Pankaj Ghemawat, the system of globalization actually follows a certain pattern of progression for different organizations today. According to the said author, the said system of industrial development is dependent on the process by which organizations actually adapt to the different aspects of improvement based on CAGE (Culture, Administration, Geography and Economics). Considering the said elements in establishing the organizations that are capable of facing the challenges of globalization, it could be noted that the employees who are to be absorbed by such institutions having such status in the industry are also supposed the required quality of handling the challenges of the modern society’s demands from the said organizations. (Ghemawat)

            This is the reason why universities have been able to take advantage of the situation through creating certain programs that are to increase the competency of their students in facing the new demands of the institutions that are to take them in after graduating from school. Likely, universities also intend to help the working society to even increase their competency in their own fields of industries. HCM is among the many programs that are offered in a university today. According to an interviewed professor, it is a program that is actually pursued to help existing working professionals in the hospitals and other healthcare facilities to be able to gain competency of work especially when it comes to dealing with managerial issues at work. Some may even be caused for promotional reasons or at some point simply to increase their level of performance to be able to handle the global approach of modern institutions today. Wherever the program may lead the students who enroll in them, all the instructors hope is that they land a good position in their own institutions and somehow be able to meet the needs of the modern society of whom they are rendering service to. It could be observed that through this particular program, nurses, caregivers and other healthcare assistants become more efficient in their field of work. However, although this is the case, the interviewee admitted that the system the university applies at present to give focus on the HCM program offering still needs more improvements so as to be able to handle the major issues that are in connection with the global training that the students need.

            The improvements are rather considered much radical to be taken into consideration by the university’s administration. Obviously, as the procedures for global strategy had been outlined in this paper, the institution has not actually met the standards of going global yet. Since the need for management knowledgeable students in the hospital industries is also not yet at much high demand, the institution does not perceive pushing towards going global at the time. They particularly note the need to enhance their services and the procedures of providing education to the target students through technological advancements that are required in the industries today. Aside from this, the expansion of personnel who would handle a new globalized system of teaching HCM would mean a greater level of financing and rigid training for the new instructors to be hired as well. These factors actually show that the entire system of the institution is not at all that prepared yet to go global because of the circumstances that it is still dealing with at present. Further preparations more are needed to make the entire institution more globally equipped to face the challenges of the industry that it wants to penetrate.
