Track Chair's summary: Despite having worked in 20 countries Phil declared himself as not being comfortable in a multinational classroom. His research focussed on an MBA on which 95% of students were international. His aim was to make better use of group work and improve group cohesion through the group allocation process. The main models were: student selection; instructor selection; systematic selection and a hybrid approach. It was interesting that over 75% of students changed their view as to how groups should be constructed once they had experienced group work. This research provided another argument against the one year masters' for international students.
