Roach-Duncan, Joy
Journal of Applied Research for Business Instruction, v8 n3 2010
In recent times experiential learning attempted to assist student development in almost every field. More specifically regarding business studies, instructors have used experiential learning projects in a variety of ways, depending upon the business function. The described learning project progression holds the potential to be useful to instructors looking to expose undergraduate students to a simulated consulting-related environment where communication, technical, and problem-solving skills are used. Projects may assist a variety of offices and businesses in the area where the undergraduate students themselves are employed. Even though the example herein includes a research methods class, such problems can be used in marketing, management, or business statistics courses in many different levels of the business classroom. Further, the statistical application may be reduced to fit any level of classroom. (Contains 2 tables.)
