More than 30 leading international business professors and authors from all over the country will gather at WSU for a two-day symposium and workshop May 19-20 on internationalizing curricula at business schools.
The conference is being hosted by WSU's Center for International Business Advancement. Most of the events will be held at WSU's Marcus Welcome Center and Devlin Hall, with a May 19 evening banquet at the Olive Tree Banquet Hall, 2949 N. Rock Road.
Business schools nationwide are looking at ways to internationalize their curriculum to offer current, relevant courses for students entering the global marketplace. The conference will also include discussions on other new curricula development.
Professors from schools such as Brigham Young University, the University of Michigan, Temple University, and Thunderbird-The Garvin School of International Management are scheduled to participate in the conference.
As part of the conference, business educators will also hear about local international business success stories. Pizza Hut co-founders Dan and Frank Carney will share their story during the noon May 19 luncheon and, later in the day, conference participants will visit LSI Logic/Engenio Storage Group.
The cost, which includes meals and materials, is $220 for onsite registration. For more information, call 978-3176 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
