Internationalizing the Introduction to Business Course Using an International Text and Domestic Simulation with a Twist


  • Annette L. Halpin
  • William D. Biggs


This article provides information concerning the authors’ experiences with integrating and internationalizing the Introduction to Business course through the use of computerized simulations. We first describe the phases in the development of the course. Second, we discuss problems we encountered as the course evolved from a non-simulation course to a simulation course and from a domestic orientation to an international orientation. Finally, we present some materials that help make a domestically oriented simulation into one with somewhat of an international focus.
