About this book

In today’s dynamic global business environment where knowledge is a main asset and learning becomes the most important process, Business Education needs to employ the right practices to develop future leaders. Businesses require graduates that become true experts. But can business schools indeed create learning experiences that address the needs of the global marketplace? Can they teach students to build learning organizations?

The articles in this volume detail successful approaches developed by business educators and researchers. The approaches have been implemented to solve real problems and to provide students with the ethical and analytical abilities they will need to both compete and contribute to the betterment of others.

The thematic part of this volume focuses on the potential of interactive on-line activities to promote business and economics education. They demonstrate the benefits that learning technologies can bring and show how to overcome potential problem issues.
