    • Abstract:
      Informed, critical business journalism is vital to a well-functioning society. But students are typically reluctant to study business journalism, often finding the topic intimidating. This article outlines how the author has taught a business journalism course in New Zealand and the United States. The course uses a variety of methods to help the students learn and remain engaged with the material. The course has been successful, with students--who often have no business backgrounds--subsequently becoming business journalists. The article reports on student and industry responses to the course and reflects on what could be done to enhance it further.
