Internationalizing the Business School Curriculum by Internationalizing the Business School Faculty.
Cima, Lawrence R.; Daley, James M.
In order to meet the challenge of today's global business environment and accreditation requirements for "internationalization," the School of Business at John Carroll University in Ohio undertook a 2-year project to enhance the internationalization of its faculty. The core of the project involved a set of on-site workshops on curriculum internationalization for the faculty in four functional areas: accounting, finance, marketing, and management. The workshops were led by recognized experts and provided faculty with materials and strategies for infusing international materials into the targeted core courses. Faculty were then encouraged to include international class endeavors in their teaching. A project director was available to assist and monitor faculty, and syllabi were collected for each course and reviewed for international materials. Later, an outside evaluator visited campus; studied syllabi; interviewed faculty, administrators, and students; and wrote a report regarding the findings. Related efforts included hiring a recognized expert in international business and developing a faculty exchange with a university in the People's Republic of China. The overall project was deemed successful because the School of Business regained accreditation status that it had lost due to the earlier lack of internationalization in the curriculum. Included are 12 references. (JB)
