Managerial Selection Decisions in Multinational Corporations: Teaching International Business Using Problem-Based Learning
Zisk, Daniel S.; Owyar-Hosseini, Marion M.; DuBose, Philip B.
Journal of Teaching in International Business, v26 n2 p94-108 2015
Companies face many challenges as they staff managerial positions in overseas operations, including decisions on whether to staff using expatriates, host-country nationals, or third-country nationals. We developed an exercise--designed to help students understand the differences between these three groups of employees--that requires students to develop a set of criteria that would form the basis for choosing the candidate they deem to be the best one. In addition, the exercise can serve as a springboard to discussion of the different training and compensation requirements for each of the three different types of employee. The steps involved in the exercise are presented together with suggestions for debriefing the exercise.
