Can Taking an IB Course Change Students' Attitudes towards International Affairs and Welfare of Other Countries?

Americans in general tend to pay less attention to international affairs than their counterparts around the world. Therefore, Americans know much less about international affairs and lack international knowledge than people in other countries (Ivengar & Morin, 2006). As we move to high levels of globalization on all fronts, we must confront our lack of knowledge and how we might remedy this problem. So, we aim to analyze if completion of a course in international business increases students' attention to international affairs and changes students' attitude toward other countries and their welfare. The results suggest that while taking an international business course does increase students' attentiveness on international affairs, students' attitudes towards other countries and their welfare did not significantly change.
