Abstract

This article examines how an undergraduate Business module at an English-medium university in China has responded to three recent global trends in higher education: massification; growth in nonfirst-language English speakers engaging in English-medium study; and growth in mobile internet access. Details are given about the approaches and activities employed to respond to these trends. It is hoped that other practitioners, who are likely to be affected by the same trends, may find some of the responses described here to be applicable to their own context.
