Bringing The “Big Picture” Into Intro To Management Classes: A Roundtable Discussion

Despite pedagogical innovations, the “theory-practice” gap persists in business education. In the Introduction to Management class, educators face dual challenges of content relevance and student motivation, which perhaps can be addressed by bringing contemporary management issues into the classroom. Numerous attempts have highlighted relevant contemporary issues, yet the field lacks collective reflection and systematic approaches to create course connections, specifically regarding what big-picture issues should be included and how to integrate them with other course objectives. In this roundtable discussion, we invite participants to discuss the issues, directing conversation toward mapping alternative approaches to the Intro to Management class.
