Internationalizing the Business Curriculum: Technology and Social Change.
In 1986 the Technology and Social Change Program and the College of Business at Iowa State University joined forces to develop a new graduate course that focused on the role of the multinational corporation in technology transfer to the lesser developed countries. The course was team taught by faculty from different disciplines and colleges, and was directed toward graduate majors in international development and international business. Background information about the university and the development of the course is presented along with a description of the couse itself and an outline of the various benefits the course has to offer the university, individual disciplines, the participating faculty members, and the business graduate students. Experiences of one member of the permanent faculty team teaching the course show how foreign-language-for-business instructors can contribute to and benefit from such a course. (DB)
