Disruptive Education of Economics in a Traditional Business Administration Undergraduate Program

This project is oriented toward a disruptive innovation in education, specifically in the field of education in economic science for Business Administration undergraduate students. Given the complexity of our modern world, a profound analysis is required to understand the goals, processes, methodologies, and strategies for the efficient connection between learning and the teaching process on one hand, and the “academic” and global real universe on the other. As the saying goes, our students need to “learn how to learn”. The only way to prepare them to lead success lives, is in a holistic way, taking into account all of their dimensions.

In this vein, professors from the Department of Economics at Universidad Finis Terrae (Chile) have set out to search for (and hopefully find) the solution for making the process of learning and teaching economics, for students of Business Administration, include all the aspects of the human learning experience, including the intellectual, psychological, motivational, experiential, relational and technological dimensions. This would result in a more “X-dimensional” educative process, rather than a linear memorization-examination scheme.

IAP & Universidad Finis Terrae - Department of Economics RESEARCH PROJECT Project is advised by professors who collaborate with IAP.

Duration: October 2019 - July 2021
