Abstract

If you step into almost any university classroom in Australia where students are studying business, you may well be struck by how multicultural it is. In 2010, 52% of Australian higher education students in the broad area of business and economics were international students (ABS, 2014a). In addition, on 30 June, 2013, 27.7% of the estimated resident population was born overseas 6.4 million people (ABS, 2014b), further contributing to increasingly culturally mixed classes. The challenge for business teachers is how to use this diversity as a resource to create a culturally inclusive classroom where students are encouraged to learn from each other’s perspectives (Barker, 2012; Leask, 2013; Lilley, Barker, & Harris, 2014).
