Service Learning in a Master of Business Administration (MBA) Integrative Project Course: An Experience in China
Coffey, Betty S.; Wang, Jia
Journal of Education for Business, v82 n2 p119-124 Nov-Dec 2006
Service learning is a teaching method used by business faculty to link the learning goals and objectives of an academic course with meaningful community service. Although service learning has been advanced in business education in the United States and other Western countries, little has been reported on its use outside the Western context. In this article, the authors describe an experience with the introduction and implementation of a service-learning project in a Master of Business Administration (MBA) program in south China. Preliminary feedback shows that students, faculty, and community partners have reported numerous benefits from the service-learning experience similar to those reported in the Western context.
