How To Integrate Problem-Based Learning Into Business Courses

What is it about?

While cultivating the application of learning across the curriculum, the authors engaged MBA students in solving complex, real-world sustainability challenges using a pedagogical emphasis on nurturing creativity via double-looped learning, meaningful self-directed assessment, and professional development coaching.

Why is it important?

The value for students (and faculty) includes improved skills in framing complex problems, first-hand insight into emerging business challenges, increased cross-discipline integration. Moreover, it offers a proving ground for applying emerging theories and analytical tools and models in the decision sciences.
