Global BIZQUIZ: A New Way To Promote Learning of International Business.
Davidson, Lawrence S.; Holschuh, Kai
This paper describes BIZQUIZ, a quick and inexpensive solution for enhancing in both students and faculty the concepts of international business learning outside the curriculum. It is noted that this student-run activity can utilize computer technology to accomplish its objectives, as well as other devices to create interest in global business, such as donated prizes for incentives, competition, team playing, and both student and faculty involvement. How the BIZQUIZ process works is explained along with information on the numbers of student and faculty participating and a description of some of the program's prizes for reading articles and answering questions on international topics. The game is divided into two parts: (1) weekly contests spanning two semesters; and (2) a championship contest held once a year. It is noted that the results from the program are encouraging and suggest that its implementation is capable of quickly injecting global business learning through a means outside the curriculum. Appendices include the program schedule, the BIZQUIZ procedural list, the BIZQUIZ question form, and the rules of the BIZBOWL. (GLR)
