American Hegemony and Business Education in the Arab World
Neal, Mark; Finlay, Jim L.
Journal of Management Education, v32 n1 p38-83 2008
To what extent is American business education "hegemonic" in the Arab world? To answer this, the authors examine whether Lebanese people exposed to American-style business education share the values implicit in their textbooks and teaching resources. Finding evidence for such values among Lebanese business students and working people alike, they argue that American business education is not only externally dominant; it is also internally hegemonic in its influences on local Arab values. The authors examine the problems American hegemony causes in Arab classrooms and discuss how problem-based learning provides an alternative and more relevant learning experience for Arab students. (Contains 4 tables and 3 notes.)
