Article
This paper describes the development of a paper and pencil instrument that classifies the principal motivations for students participating in study abroad programs. While many of the factors relating to relevant program parameters are readily apparent (Engle and Engle, 2003), it is important to understand how students’ motivation for participating...
Article
This study is a first step in examining the link between motivation and the various elements of study programs; clearly more work must be done. Given the results of this study, it appears that motivation to study abroad is an important dimension to consider in future research efforts. As the tools for measuring the impact of a study abroad program...

I am Professor and Chair of the Management Department at the University of St. Thomas, my professional home for the past 30 years. My primary teaching interest has always been strategic planning. I discovered business simulations over 30 years ago, and have been a user and advocate of them throughout my professional life. In 1992, I was awarded a F...

Intercultural Development: Study Abroad vs. On-campus Study Abstract This study compared the intercultural development of students enrolled in a faculty-led study abroad program with students enrolled in two on-campus courses. The focus of this research was on student learning outcomes (development of cross-cultural sensitivity) as opposed to insti...
Article
Full-text available
This article focuses on the research associated with the assessment of the cognitive learning that occurs through participation in a simulation exercise. It summarizes the objective evidence regarding cognitive learning versus the perceptions of cognitive learning achieved as reported by participants and instructors. The authors also explain why li...
Article
Full-text available
Hammer and Bennett’s (2002) intercultural development inventory (IDI) is used to assess the impact of a semester long study abroad program on the development of cross-cultural sensitivity. The results of this study provide evidence that a student’s integration and adaptation to cultural experiences continue after a student returns home after their...
Article
Purpose The purpose of the paper is to compare the performance of distance‐learning students in a Small Business Management (SBM) course with that of internal (on‐campus) students, and to examine students' demographics and information processing systems for their moderating effects on performance of each student group. Design/methodology/approach...

Full-text available
Longitudinal studies that measure the impact of study abroad programs are essential to improving our understanding of the effectiveness of international education. The focus of the current research is on the development of cross-cultural sensitivity. Hammer and Bennett's [(2002). The Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) manual. Portland, OR: I...
Article
This article makes two contributions to the teaching of business ethics literature. First, it describes the steps involved in developing effective ethical dilemmas to incorporate into a computer-based business simulation. Second, it illustrates these steps by presenting two ethical dilemmas that an instructor can incorporate into any business simul...
Article
Full-text available
This paper explains how a framework consisting of four levels can be used to evaluate business simulations as educational tools. The four levels consist of measuring (1) the reactions of the students, (2) the amount of learning achieved by the students, (3) the degree to which the behavior of students in other settings reflects what they have learn...
Article
Full-text available
The ABSEL Committee on Assessment was organized to investigate the possibility of establishing registration procedures for the use of simulation games as instruments of student assessment. This paper discusses the issues involved in this initiative, focusing particularly on the problem of validation. It addresses the importance of following rigorou...
Article
This paper discusses how to introduce ethical dilemmas into computer-based business simulation exercise to teach business ethics. Simulations have an inherent advantage over other pedagogies for teaching ethics because simulations provide students with both an intellectual and a behavioral exposure to the topic. Issues addressed include considerati...
Article
Full-text available
This paper focuses on the learning effectiveness of simulation exercises. It identifies a myriad of possible Learning objectives for simulations. Most of these objectives have been studied using perceptions as the dependent variable; few have been investigated using a more objective dependent variable. It is clear that objective measures have been...
Article
Full-text available
Patz (1990, 1992) presented evidence that total enterprise simulations are biased in favor of a particular personality type. This study directly tests Patz's hypotheses but uses individuals rather than groups to isolate the effects of personality type on simulation performance from that caused by group dynamics. No support for Patz's conclusions is...
Article
Survey results of assessment methods used by simulation instructors to evaluate student performance on business simulations are presented. The learning objectives that instructors were attempting to measure with these assessment methods are also presented. The Bloom et al. (1959) taxonomy for classifying levels of learning was used to categorize th...
Article
Full-text available
Analysis was conducted to assess the relationship between financial performance on a business simulation exercise and various other measures of student learning. Financial performance was represented by a composite performance score that rated student companies based on net income, return on investment (ROI), and return on assets (ROA) achieved in...
Article
This replication of a comparison of student perceptions and attitudes toward learning from case studies and from management simulations found that students perceive the simulation exercise to be superior to case study discussions for learning skills in the business policy course. Because these results contradict the findings of the original study,...
Article
The performance of distant students on a business simulation and related exercises in a Small Business Management course was compared with that of on-campus students and the variables associated with the performance of each student group examined. Distant students matched or exceeded the performance of on-campus students in spite of the setbacks as...
Article
Full-text available
An "individualized" version of a competitive, total enterprise (TE) simulation exercise was tested as a potential instrument for measuring the skills developed on a group-managed simulation. No significant relationship was found between a subject's performance on the "individualized" version of the simulation and his or her performance on the group...
Article
Full-text available
Questions about the efficacy of simulations as a pedagogy for learning about the application of course concepts was explored. Results of the test showed a significant relationship between the application of concepts presented in a basic marketing course and performance on a marketing simulation. The greater number of concepts that students utilized...
Article
Full-text available
Problem-Based Learning (PBL) has gained recognition as a valuable pedagogical approach. This study explored the effectiveness of using a simulation as the PBL "problem" in a strategic planning course. This study demonstrated that a management simulation can be an effective problem for integrating PBL over the duration of a course. Factors that need...
Article
Full-text available
Recently, Problem Based Learning (PBL) has gained recognition as a pedagogical aid for designing courses. This study explored the usefulness of simulations as the ―problem‖ in a PBL designed course. Factors that need to be considered when using a simulation exercise as a PBL problem are discussed. This study demonstrated that a marketing simulation...
Article
Full-text available
This study explored the relationship between the students' success on a simulation exercise as measured by financial performance, their perceptions of the simulation's educational value, and their goal orientation. This study found the relationship between financial performance on the simulation and student perceptions of its attractiveness as an e...
