Internationalizing the Curriculum: A Case Study in the Business Division.
Warzyn, Dee
Internationalizing the business curriculum means integrating the processes of international culture into an educational setting to give students a more comprehensive understanding of the business world. As part of its efforts to internationalize the curriculum, Wisconsin's Waukesha County Technical College established an Associate degree in international trade. The International Trade Division (ITD), which assists businesses with marketing and international trade, helped the college to develop technicians with international skills and to understand international practices related to import and export. Funding for the ITD was obtained through two grants, which allowed the college to hire a grant facilitator and implement such strategies for internationalization as sending resistant decision makers on international experiences to help them understand the benefits of internationalization, enrolling faculty in conferences, and bringing businesses to the college to discuss their needs and problems with international trade. The grants also covered faculty trips to foreign countries and stipends for curriculum development. Outside the grants, the ITD developed export training videos and catalogs for other institutions and businesses, and other countries were invited to send students, faculty, and administrators to the United States. Other programs included a statewide summer institute held in 1996 and a Developing a Curriculum (DACUM) process. (HAA)
