Internationalizing the Business Curriculum at a Smaller School: The Importance of Colleagues in Language, History, Political Science, and Area Studies.
Rider, Caroline V.
This report suggests that language study combined with the broad-based study of the history, politics, and culture of other countries, as well as existing international business courses, are essential for first-class preparation of a business person who will operate internationally. The report discusses how to sharpen the focus of internalization so that it can be done effectively at a smaller school whose resources for the project may be limited. The recommended approach is a major or concentration in international business, rather than required international business courses for all business majors. An interdisciplinary approach is built in from the beginning, together with required foreign language proficiency. (Author/JL)
