Business Teaching Beyond Silos focuses on the application of business education to the teaching of other subject areas and how other subject areas inform business teaching. It outlines the benefits of using interdisciplinarity and multidisciplinarity to enhance business education and to influence and inform business practice within other disciplines. Drawing on case studies and the contributors' own experiences, the book showcases what cross-, inter- and multidisciplinary learning and teaching means, and how it impacts academia and the real world. Chapters explore interdisciplinarity in STEM, as well as the humanities and social science areas, examining key topics including business teaching philosophies, cultivating business skills and team coaching. Presenting examples of where interdisciplinary teaching has been both successful and challenging, the book will enable practitioners to understand and utilise the worked examples to adapt their own practice. This practical book will be a useful resource for higher education teachers and academics who are interested in the teaching benefits of educating students with interdisciplinary knowledge and skills.
