Experiential Learning: A Definitive Edge in the Job Market
Clark, James; White, Gayle Webb
American Journal of Business Education, v3 n2 p115-118 Feb 2010
The value of experiential learning is explored as it has now become a given among educators and corporate leaders that a university must provide experiential learning programs such as internships; real-life cases in marketing research, advertising, etc.; and voluntary student participation in income tax preparation for the needy and elderly; and many additional types of programs to promote the application of learning and involvement with the world of work. The paper presents one unique experiential learning program in complete detail--Student in Free Enterprise's Walgreens Wrangle. This is a twelve-university business strategy competition sponsored by the Students in Free Enterprise team at Southern Arkansas University that has the three-day involvement of managers of four major corporations. This period of time to interact both professionally and socially with a corporate group has proven to be invaluable to business majors and provided them with many experiential learning experiences.
