A multipronged approach to improving the performance of international students on a business strategy module

Abstract

This 5-year Action Research project aimed to improve the experience of international, particularly Chinese, undergraduates and to narrow performance gaps with domestic students by (a) embedding academic and language support, and (b) applying a business simulation. We present our key findings and invite discussion on applicability to other mixed cohorts at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
