Incorporating International Business Concepts into the High School Curriculum.
Kruzel, Sandra L.
Balance Sheet, p10-12 May-Jun 1988
This document is comprised of a journal article ("Business Education with an International Flavor") and conference presentation handouts describing a 2-year course in international business management available to high school juniors and seniors in Toldeo Ohio. This program is a 2-year vocational business program for juniors and seniors in high school. The course was designed to develop students' global awareness and understanding of various cultures as they relate to American business. A survey of 20 Toledo-areas companies taken in the early stages of developing the course of studies showed 100 percent support for the program. Some business leaders worked with the schools to develop the program and to work on promotion, recruitment, curriculum development, and student requirements. Members of the International Studies Institute of the University of Toledo also helped with curriculum development. The overall course of study involves a combination of business administration subjects and international world trade concepts. Each student in the program has a sponsor who is a business professional in an international division of a Toledo-area company and who serves as a mentor for the 2 year period. Students are required to be fluent in or studying a foreign language. Two local universities also offer courses open to the students in the program. The handouts include various course materials including the course outline, guidelines for sponsors, and locations of program inquiries. (JB)
