Teaching International Business: An Interactive Workshop
Thursday, October 26th from 1:30 to 4:30 pm
The practice of international business continues to evolve in the current environment of mega disruptions and uncertainty. In the meantime, new instructional technologies are being added to the instructor’s toolbox. For international business educators, the changing environment of cross-border business implies new and novel approaches to educating the next generation of business leaders. Among other things, business educators need to reflect such new realities as: risk management, trade conflicts, increased polarization, and a new world order.
Our teaching must be relevant, engaging, and innovative. The new generation of students, both undergraduate and graduate, provides new challenges for educators. How can we share the excitement of an interconnected global economy with our students? How can we best connect and communicate with them via such pedagogical approaches as: experiential exercises and projects; online learning; videos; and cases and exercises?
At Georgia State University, we teach a core course in international business to all business undergraduates and also offer a specialization in IB. Our cadre of master teachers are constantly engaged in course development and revision, developing new teaching resources and pedagogy, and innovating new approaches to engage our students, provide experiential opportunities, and equip them with work-ready skills and competencies.
Join us for a conversation where we will share our experiences and tools for teaching international business.
