This article focuses on research conducted into the value of strategy teaching and the impact of current information communication technologies (ICTs) on the business life of students in South Africa and the United States (US). The first objective of the research was to assess students' perceptions of the value of strategic management on their business life and what online practices they currently employ. The second objective was to identify students' modes of ICT access, awareness about possible ICTs, influence of sharing, submitting, amending and using information, taking time away from studies, and so forth. The third objective was to establish some differences between the two research populations in South Africa and the US. The majority of students indicated that they experience significant value in their study of strategy and there were also significant differences between the two populations about the perceived value of the ICT activities they perform.
