Wood, Santiago V.
The role of Vista College, a non-campus college in the San Francisco Bay area, is discussed in this paper with respect to its provision of courses and programs in international business education. After section I describes the college and its location, students, and programs, section II makes a case for the importance of international business education in an increasingly interrelated and interdependent world. Section III discusses international trade and the role of California's community colleges in developing international and multicultural curricula. Section IV highlights the objectives of Vista's International Business and Cross-Cultural Program in providing educational opportunities in international trade, establishing networks among business and educational institutions, and providing direct services to business. After Section V describes the administration and staffing of the International Business Program, the international aspects of the curriculum are outlined in section VI, including a description of the Certificate in International Trade program, the non-credit community services program of workshops and seminars for business people, and the college's language laboratory. Sections VII and VIII discuss student placement and the educational impact of the programs. The final sections briefly outline future plans and identify a contact person for the programs. (HB)
