Higher education needs are changing as business students enter an increasingly globalized workplace, where thought and practice is not routine, constant, or standardized. Classroom practices that incorporate self-leadership, relying on sustainable strategic management theory, including stakeholders pertinent to the higher education process, supports the importance of continuously being responsible and accountable in thought and action. This paper will introduce the changes taking place in society that are impacting current business students’ characteristics, reveals the increasing need for self-leadership training, and will introduce and use the strategic management process to suggest tested classroom ideas and practices that assist in strengthening and sustaining business students’ career progress in a globalized workplace.
