Project-Based Learning in International Financial Management
Young, John H.; Legister, Allison P.
Journal of Teaching in International Business, v29 n1 p76-87 2018
This exploratory study measures the effectiveness of the signature project-based learning model to assess the enhancement of student engagement. The goal of the signature project is to prepare students to apply critical thinking and collaborative skills; making connections between global financial issues and textbook concepts in application to a significant project completed across the semester. Undergraduate International Finance students were used to describe the impact of the signature project through actions, feelings, and thought. This study provides an initial validation of the signature project in finance, especially, replacing the research written report with a documentary film. Overall, the analysis indicated that three distinct factors were underlying students' responses to the expected learning outcomes and that these factors were internally consistent.
