There is a general air of excitement when an organization decides to do business overseas. Benedictine University experienced the same initial excitement when it signed the contract to deliver an MBA program overseas. Adjunct faculty, many of whom had international business experience, clamored to teach in the program. Too often faculty are offered no preparation other than being given a Visa and a 1-2 page introduction to the cultural customs they may encounter in their classroom. Many universities delivering programs overseas struggle to find an adequate model that covers classroom management and pedagogy to function successfully in an overseas classroom. This paper is a case study based on a U.S. university offering an MBA program in Asia, examining best practices that have evolved over six years reflecting faculty experience in the Asian classroom, and offering a model for preparing faculty to teach in Asia.
