Today's students want to be active participants in the learning experience, whether they are in the classroom or learning online. They are looking for an education that will translate fluidly into their working lives on day one. Employers need to hire and train knowledgeable managers who can work in an increasingly multi-cultural environment, doing business across borders and utilizing multiple platforms to get the job done. As these students and employers look more and more to online education options, innovative educators are using technology to transform the experiential learning techniques that are used at leading business schools around the globe for the eLearning environment.
Technology gives students access to more than just knowledge and connections. It can provide unprecedented opportunities for real-world experiences and engagement that enhance knowledge development, skills retention and intercultural fluency. What’s more, eLearning platforms are expanding access to world-class education in developing countries, facilitating not only information transfer, but cross-border dialogue and knowledge sharing among students around the globe.
