This essay describes an international graduate business education experience involving a US and a French university in which a graduate course in information systems was prepared and delivered. In addition to describing the overall experience, several problematic issues and challenges are identified and discussed. Special emphasis is placed on three areas of differences, communications, technology, and culture. Areas in which faculty growth and development occurred also are identified and discussed. Awareness of these differences and opportunities, their impact on course and professional conduct, and possible actions and outcomes may be useful to other educators and academic administrators interested in developing and/or operating a similar program internationally.
