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.
Â 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.
