The Study Abroad Experience: A Crucial Element in Globalizing Business School Programs
Mangiero, George A.; Kraten, Michael
Journal of International Education Research, v7 n1 p35-44 2011
Globalization is a fundamental reality of modern business practice. Participation in a study abroad program is a crucial element in helping students become well rounded global business leaders; it is an increasingly important element of a well rounded business curriculum. A semester or summer abroad, properly conceived and designed, can provide enormous benefits to the modern business student. A variety of organizations, including the AACSB, Forum EA, IBEX, and MSU-CIBER, emphasize the benefits of the direct immersion of business students in global environments and settings. This paper presents an innovative model, entitled PACK & GO, that describes the key elements of a study abroad program for schools, colleges, and universities of business. The model addresses the philosophy, assessment, curriculum, knowledge, governance, and outcomes features of an effective program. The paper concludes with an illustrative example, as well as recommendations for implementation at other institutions.
