Abstract

University business curriculum has often gone beyond traditional lectures as a means of teaching accounting, finance, marketing and other core topics, and has recognized the benefits of global experiences and experiential learning. This paper details an innovative short-term study abroad course in Nicaragua, which provided students with service learning experience, hands on consulting with Nicaraguan entrepreneurs and an international micro lending organization, and a global and culturally-broadening experience.
