Abstract

In this article we demonstrate, through the case of Egypt, how the emphasis on one specific learning mode from primary through to secondary school, and to a lesser extent, culture, impact learning abilities. We describe how Egyptian students are impaired when confronted to learning modes they have not encountered prior to University, when they join a businessadministration, bi-national, double-degree programme. We explain how a "globalized" method (computer based business simulation) was blended with a local context, and turned into a glocal one to respond to a learning challenge and to the needs of a double degree curriculum (French and Egyptian).
