The third volume in the series Educational Innovation in Economics and Business contains a unique selection of articles describing different aspects of the development of innovative platforms for business education. It is a comprehensive examination of how business educators may develop innovative learning platforms. It describes new educational technologies like action-based learning, problem-based learning, student-centred education, partnerships between education and business and computer-based education.
The focus of this edited volume is not only business education as such, but it also examines the influence of other disciplines on business education.
