If you are coming to the AIB conference in Washington D.C., you are invited to an exciting session on Internationalizing and Enriching the Business Curriculum, with five interesting papers. Here are some details of the session.
Internationalizing and Enriching the Business Curriculum
Chair: Vinod K Jain, India-US World Affairs Institute, Inc.
Monday, July 2, 2012
2:30 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.
Room: Meridian C
Track: 13 - Teaching IB
My own paper in this session is about a course I had been teaching at the Robert H. Smith School of Business, University of Maryland, for the last four years: International Business Boot Camp (An Intensive IB Course with Field Visits).
This is an intensive version of our undergraduate IB survey course, offered as a "boot camp" over a period of one week, but with significant amount of pre- and post-work. The course was offered at the Ronald Reagan Building, with lectures in the mornings and visits to international organizations in the afternoons. Washington is a quintessentially international city, and the course made full use of Washington's international resources, such as the World Bank, IMF, EU Commission to the United States, MNEs, Port of Baltimore, and embassies.
If you are not coming to the AIB conference, you can find more information about the course through this link: http://www.rhsmith.umd.edu/ciber/students/courses/IntlBootcamp/2011/. This link also has my course syllabus, student feedback, and even a short video of a previous offering of the course.
