Global Perspectives Documentation

December 10, 2010, effective immediately

CBE Process for meeting and documentation of meeting the Global Perspective aspect of our programs

Relevant AACSB Standards and Interpretations Related to Globalization

E. Consistent with its mission and its cultural context, the institution must demonstrate diversity in its business programs.

INTERPRETATION: At a minimum, the school must show that within this context its business programs include diverse viewpoints among participants and prepare graduates for careers in the global context.  Every graduate should be prepared to pursue a business or management career in a global context. That is, students should be exposed to cultural practices different from their own. The school must document how it achieves diverse viewpoints among its participants and as a part of students’ learning experiences.
The school must determine the specific ways globalization is included in the curriculum.

Guidance for Documentation:
Show how the curriculum across the dimensions outlined in the standard demonstrates a global perspective.

CBE Policy and Process

1.    Require an international experience of all students. Create “an account of international experiences” for each student in Live Text to monitor the activity. Examples of acceptable activities are attendance at any internationally oriented programs on campus or off-campus, travel outside of the United States, or acquire second language capability.

This requirement will be monitored at the point of admission to the college. Those not meeting it will be notified, along with their advisor, of the urgent need to complete the requirement.

2.    Provide international study stipends to CBE students to encourage international study.

3.    Each student must complete the university Global Perspectives requirement.
