International Business Education in the Community College.
Channing, Rose M.; Blanco, Virgil
After introductory material descrying the lack of international studies in American education, this report describes the development, design, and accomplishments of the International Business Education program at Middlesex County College (MCC). The following phases in the development of the program are detailed: (1) a five-member curriculum team, representing the Business, Health Technologies, Science, Engineering, and Liberal Arts divisions of the college, met during the summer of 1978 to consider various approaches to an International Studies program, develop a bibliography for their curriculum areas, and develop suggestions for course units; (2) during the 1978-79 academic year, monthly seminars and workshops were held for faculty to develop ideas about incorporating internationally related content into appropriate curricula; (3) International Business I was developed and taught and four other courses were prepared; (4) several other activities were offered for faculty development; (5) a survey was conducted to determine the educational needs of local industries involved in international commerce with regard to specific training and foreign language requirements; (6) instructional efforts--including conferences for the business community, non-credit and credit certificate programs, and Round Table Seminars--were geared toward meeting these identified needs.
