Transfer of Learning across Courses in an MBA Curriculum: A Managerial Finance Case Study
Stretcher, Robert; Hynes, Geraldine E.; Maniam, Bala
Journal of Instructional Pedagogies, v4 Oct 2010
Business degree programs typically include a variety of required courses targeting analytical skills, general knowledge, and communication competencies. Integration of these learning outcomes is crucial for students' effective professional activities, yet little is known about cross-disciplinary transfer of specific knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs). This study examined the extent to which graduate students applied oral and written communication skills and strategies learned in a Managerial Communication course to assignments in a Managerial Finance course. Principles of organization were the most frequently applied communication strategies. Additionally, quality levels of the Finance course deliverables seemed relatively unaffected by students' prior Managerial Communication course experience.
