Business Training and Commercial Education. Bulletin, 1921, No. 43
Swiggett, Glen Levin
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The period of participation of the United States in the recent war witnessed a revival of interest in training for business with a consequent experimentation in all types and grades of schools, as well as through nonschool agencies, governmental and otherwise. A survey of this field for the two years ending June 30, 1920, reveals an interest even greater than that of the preceding two years for traditional schools, but indicates a subsidence of interest and discontinuance of experimental effort on the part of some nonschool agencies particularly branches of the Federal Government. Three recent foundations present new developments. They have their inception in the definite belief that training will lead to a larger and more practical application of pertinent principles of the economics of business to the specific problems of one or more of the major factor in industry and commerce. These new foundations are: Trade-union colleges; the Industrial University of the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., and the announcement that plans are under way for the establishment by the National Association of Corporation Schools of an industrial and commercial university for the purpose of making investigations and conducting courses to train efficient, executives in all departments of the field of personnel relations in industrial and commercial life. Contents of this bulletin include: (1) New Developments; (2) Training and education; (3) Recent surveys; (4) Training in retail selling; (5) Commercial teacher training; (6) Foreign service training; (7) Foreign trade training survey; (8) Commercial engineering; and (9) Related activities of Federal bureaus.
