There is a mandate for business educators to cultivate Global Mindset in their students. In the accounting discipline, employers explicitly state that they seek job candidates who demonstrate a Global Mindset. To many educators in the U.S., developing Global Mindset in their students is a bewildering challenge because their own Global Mindset may be weak in some aspects, and widely used accounting textbooks fall short in presenting ideological, socio-political, and cultural perspectives alternative to that of Anglo-American capitalism. This study surveyed accounting educators from U.S. institutions to evaluate their Global Mindset, identify common weaknesses in their Global Mindset, and provide a starting point in developing or improving Global Mindset in these educators, thereby instilling confidence in their ability to design engaging, enjoyable experiential learning activities to develop Global Mindset in their students.
