Abstract [en]

Business and information technology are highly compatible curriculum partners for academic study, providing a multitude of opportunities for enterprise and entrepreneurship. However, training students to successfully operate in today's international, fast-moving technology world requires more than merely curricula encompassing such topics. Appropriate learning styles involve the application of IT, to improve efficiency and operational styles but technology use must also be seen in a business context. The use of appropriate real-life scenarios such as case studies, role-play and designing and developing Web sites as well as the use of various information systems are important in the development of entrepreneurial skills such as creativity, dynamism, individuality and team working. This paper reports on an innovative suite of modules offered to international students, as part of their semester or year-long exchange at Halmstad University, Sweden. Dealing with numerous aspects of business information technology, these modules are delivered through various learning approaches. The overall aim is to provide the students with a wide range of perspectives and analytical skills, while acknowledging diversity in heritage and cultural influences. Modules presented could well be included in a training program for future international entrepreneurs.
