Summary

If you find traditional lectures and course material ineffective for teaching students how to develop a sensitivity to cultural differences and apply “home grown” technologies to foreign situations, Business Simulations, Games and Experiential Learning in International Business Education is the guide to help you remedy this predicament! Helpful and easy-to-use, this text teaches you how to use computer-based games and experiential learning exercises to teach international business. You’ll learn how to place students in realistic situations where they can experiment with new behaviors and receive immediate, constructive feedback and then take what they have learned beyond the classroom.

Business Simulations, Games and Experiential Learning in International Business Education helps you introduce students to global competition and business cultures as you explore important ethical, political, and social issues with them. You can better prepare your students for the challenges of international business if you pay particular attention to the book’s discussions of:
  • different levels of power-sharing
  • alternatives to traditional international business course materials and methods
  • changing the norms and behaviors of organizations and institutions
  • the role gender plays in effective gaming environments
  • simulating a European Works Council within a classroom environment
  • promoting decisionmaking and flexibility in management style
  • understanding business rules and regulations of different countries

    Academics teaching and researching in international business will find Business Simulations, Games and Experiential Learning in International Business Education an immensely useful tool as you struggle with the challenges of readying students for the international work environment. As you know, it is not enough that students be schooled in the latest developments and technologies. Use this book’s games and learning techniques to emphasize to your students that international businessmen and women must not only know their field, but also be respectful of others’cultures and values, be linguistically flexible, and be aware of foreign business rules and regulations.
