An Assessment of a Practical Experience Requirement for Undergraduate Business Majors
Eiler, Doyle A.; Stock, Paul A.
College Teaching Methods & Styles Journal, v4 n3 p23-30 2008
Approximately five years ago, the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor added a unique, practical work experience requirement to the customary graduation requirements for an undergraduate business degree. This paper examines the perceived value of this requirement from the perspective of the students (now alumni) who have been subject to the requirement and the full-time faculty who advise undergraduates. 90% of the responding alumni believe that this practical requirement is a good idea, has been valuable to them and should be enhanced and continued.
