Teaching Management Practically: Incorporating Students’ Family Experiences Into Management Teaching

Most first-year students have little or no organizational past. It makes it difficult for them to discuss what managers do, why organizations behave the way they do, the challenges facing executive leadership, etc. This environment exposes first-year students to material they don't understand or do not perceive as relevant. This is not productive education. In this paper, I discuss why and how educators need to help undergraduate business students gain an understanding of organizational life through their family experiences. After all, what students experience in their families and how their families operate is not much different from how organizations operate.
