Principles of International Business: An Experiential Learning Course.
Herdendorf, Phyllis S.
This paper explains the reasons Empire State College decided to develop a new International Business program using an experiential-learning format, discusses details of the program and how it was organized and implemented in several versions, and makes suggestions about the development of other variations and about how to resolve certain problems that are likely to arise in such non-traditional endeavors. Three tour studies (the first two to Munich and Berlin, Germany, and the third to Brussels, Belgium) are described that had the central goal of providing additional and improved ways of assisting students to learn crucial international business concepts, skills, and other related learnings from which the international business learning contract was constructed. It is noted that these tours illustrate the field experience that Empire State College provided and found successful. The present status of the program and issues to be resolved as well as some suggestions to colleges that may be interested in initiating a similar study tour are also presented. (GLR)
