UC Business Professor Discusses Experiential Learning in Poland

Monday, December 19, 2016 6:23 PM
Topic presented at Entrepreneurship, Family Business and Economic Development conference.

Professor Charles H. Matthews, executive director of the Center for Entrepreneurship Education & Research at the UC Lindner College of Business, presented a talk on experiential learning at Cracow University of Economics in Poland.

His talk, “Enhancing Research and Education Using Experiential Learning: The SBI Case Model,” was given in May 2012 at the Entrepreneurship, Family Business and Economic Development conference before a gathering of educators, practitioners and policy makers.

Matthews, who served as director of UC’s Small Business Institute® (SBI) program for 30 years, told conference participants that a best practice in business education is faculty guided, student based experiential field case learning.

The method, he says, “is widely recognized for bringing live, real-time business case issues to the classroom, leveraging teaching resources and providing practical and applied solutions to real business problems.”
