Second Grant's Activities

Abstract                                                  

Internationalization is a stated goal at PSU. The goal of internationalization at PSU has been significantly advanced since a new International Business major program was established in the fall 2004with the first BIE grant. PSU now hopes to further its internationalization efforts with another BIE grant. The proposed project will have a regional focus on the targeted strategic areas of Russia and Central Asia, as well as the key economic powers of the Northeast Asia. The grant enables PSU to provide high-quality, in-depth international business education programs. It supports international courses and modules for the College of Business. The grant also supports faculty development through funding of release time for business faculty to develop new courses, organize and implement student study-abroad programs, conduct research, and prepare for and attend international business-related workshops and conferences. It provides faculty and student support for short and long-term overseas programs. The grant allows the creation and operation of an international business outreach center that can assist area businesses in developing new export markets. The project provides a series of seminars/workshops, guest lecturers, and makes new international business resources available for PSU faculty/student as well as the area communities. Several Student-In-Free-Enterprise (SIFE) international business programs are developed to promote understanding of international economic education for K-12 educators and students. Finally, this grant will provide specific international business programs that include activities focused on the targeted strategic areas of Russia and Central Asia.   

 

Objectives 

The primary goal of this project is to significantly advance the internationalization of business curriculum at PSU. This goal is part of a larger endeavor to infuse global perspectives in the overall curriculum of the university. This goal can be achieved through four major objectives. The first objective is enhancing the newly developed International Business Major Degree program to provide high-quality, in-depth international business education. There will be several programs and projects used for this purpose: (1) creating new international courses; (2) developing an International Business Concentration for the MBA Program; (3) developing an International Business Major; (4) creating new international experiences; and (5) international-themed semester program. The second objective is strengthening faculty/student development for internationalization. The project will support faculty development through: (1) continue support for existing study abroad program within Northeast Asia; (2) developing new study abroad program with Russia and Central Asia; (3) supporting faculty development program; and (4) creation of student professional development program. The third objective is expanding international business outreach programs to area businesses. The project will achieve this objective through: (1) creation of International Economic Development Center; (2) development of outreach programs for local K-12 educators; (3) development of PSU SIFE chapter international business programs; and (4) expansion of the existing Global Business Resource Center. Finally, the fourth objective is developing specific international business programs in the targeted strategic areas of Russia and Central Asia. This objective responds to the recent development of international programs and exchanges at PSU with a regional focus on Russia and Central Asia. This objective can be achieved through: (1) supporting Russian language courses offering in PSU; (2) developing sister school relationship with institutions in Central Asia as well as Russia; (3) supporting study abroad trips to Russia and Central Asia; (4) providing seminars/workshops regarding Russia and Central Asia; and (5) SIFE international project with Russia and Central Asia.

 

Adjustments

One major adjustment has been made in this first year. Two of our BIE Program faculty members, Dr. Joell Nisolle and Phil Halstend, left Pittsburg State University at the end of the fall semester. This caused some difference between the original budget and the actual spending for personnel. The difference of $2,505 is going to be reallocated to "Travel" to support more BIE study abroad trips. The reason is that BIE Program will send three different study-abroad teams this year; those teams are going to Russia, Kazakhstan, and Korea. The U.S. Department of Education has already given PSU its approval of this adjustment.

 

Director's Assessment

All four objectives have been significantly advanced in the first year through the use of BIE Grant. Virtually all proposed activities have been finished or are under way as planned in the original application of the grant. First, the progress in the first objective is evidenced by the successful development of an IB Minor degree program and the submission of the proposal of International Business Concentration. Supporting faculty/student development for internationalization has been accomplished through funding the faculty participants in CIBER workshop, international conferences participations, faculty/student study abroad trips, and faculty travel for research. Business Outreach Program has been supported through seminars/workshops for the area businesses. In addition, Global Business Resource Center has been expended by acquiring more learning resources and materials.  Finally, the fourth objective has been accomplished through the establishment of sister schools in Russia as well as Central Asia. Also, a PSU SIFE team has visited Russia in March 2005 to conduct several international projects. As a result, the PSU SIFE chapter won the regional championship in SIFE competition and advanced to the SIFE national competition. It is important to note that this BIE Grant Program not only benefited the Kelce but also had several other benefiting groups of stakeholders, including the university itself and the surrounding business community in southeastern Kansas and the four-state region. All accomplishments achieved so far would not have happen without this grant. Therefore, we feel that not only has the BIE Project progresses substantially towards its goals, it has, in most cases, exceeded them.

The IB Minor Degree Program, as part of the first objective, was approved by PSU curriculum committees, and the university faculty senate through the period of Sep 2004-Feb2005. This minor degree program will begin on August 2005 at the start of 2005 Fall. The proposal of International Business Concentration in the MBA Program has been submitted for approval. This new concentration is expected to grow in number of students and in elective courses as the momentum increases for this new program. The second objective, supporting faculty/student development, has been accomplished through funding for CIBER/ASDP workshops, international conference participations, study abroad trips, and research travels. The third objective has been accomplished through seminars/workshops for the area businesses and an outreach program to area teachers for business/economic education programs in their schools.

Next Project Year

The proposed activities in the original application for the grant will be conducted as planned in the second year of the project. The proposed MBA program of International Business Concentration will be forwarded to the Kelce MBA curriculum committee for final approval. The new course development is on its way for the IB Minor Program and MBA International Business Concentration. The BIW Grant will continuously support study abroad programs with Northeast Asia, Russia, and Central Asia. The BIE Grant will support the establishment of local chapter of the Association of International Business Students (AIBS). The BIE Grant will continuously support the Economic Education Program for K-12 educators. The BIE Grant Project also has a plan to increase the number of materials in the Global Business Resource Center, so that it can be a useful resource for Pittsburg Business Community. We also plan on having more seminars or presentations or workshops. The BIE will keep supporting faculty/students for their participations in professional conferences, CIBER workshop, internship programs, and study abroad programs. The BIE will invite scholars/business people from Central Asia to have presentations/seminars about their countries. We will keep supporting the PSU SIFE's international programs focusing on Russia and Central Asia.
