The university of Queensland has decided to start a course on offshoring. This is the first time that any university in Australia has taken this kind of an initiative. This course will be part of a professional development course. A one-day course will be held in Brisbaneâs CBD which will be targeting business managers and entrepreneurs.

This course has been introduced after following the global trends towards outsourcing. According to a survey, businesses of Australia have saved about $24 billion through offshoring in the single year 2015.

 Richard Kennerley, of the University of Queensland, reiterated that the global labour outsourcing boom got triggered with the start of cloud computing and in the rise of a number of workers availability in countries like Philippines and India.

This course will be delivered by the pioneers and founders of the Australian – owned outsourcing firm Beepo, Mark and Aimee Engelmann.
