Kamath, Shyam; Agrawal, Jagdish; Krickx, Guido
Journal of Teaching in International Business, v19 n4 p403-449 Nov 2008
This paper discusses the theoretical foundations and implementation challenges and outcomes of a unique "hands-on" global consulting program that is integrated into an international EMBA program for mid-career and senior American and European managers. It details the challenges for the integration of experiential action learning, double-loop learning, service learning, and tacit learning into global management education and discusses the value of such integration for the EMBA-participant's learning experience. The lessons learned from the implementation of the use of integrated global consulting based on an experiential action learning model on EMBA education are discussed. The andragogical model of education used should be a useful guide for designing and implementing experiential action learning based MBA/EMBA programs. (Contains 9 figures and 2 endnotes.)
