The Team-Taught Cross-Functional Core: Insights from a Long-Term Undergraduate Program
Buttermore, John A.
Journal of Education for Business, v86 n4 p240-247 2011
A small number of undergraduate business schools have made significant changes to their curriculum to deliver a team-taught, cross-functional undergraduate core. The author examines an exemplary early-adopting program to better understand the long-term impact such a change has had on the overall organization, and to seek insights on implementation and sustainability from these experienced faculty and administrators. The author found a program that benefits students with a well-rounded view of how business operates and the people skills employers want. In the process the study school has made broad and lasting connections to business, created a sustaining model to help support the program, and redefined its culture as a community of learners.
