How a MUN Experience Meshes with the Liberal Arts and Management Education
Lampton, Jolene A.
Journal of Case Studies in Education, v2 Jul 2011
This paper documents the multiplicative benefits from an experiential extracurricular activity--i.e., participation in a Model United Nations (MUN) Club. Management instructors are encouraged to sponsor such activities to give leadership training to students. The benefits are especially rich in liberal-arts institutions, like Park University, because the experience enmeshes with life lessons taught in the curriculum. Secondly, students who study management and business studies gain considerably in what is expected in the global business community. Thirdly, the principles of PRME are upheld and nurtured. The multi-faceted experience of attending the NMUN Conference presents a dynamic opportunity that fulfills multiple educational goals and should be considered by others in business schools to add value to the curriculum.
