The work described here draws on the emergent need to internationalise the curriculum in higher education. The paper in particular focuses on the internationalisation of the Management Information Systems (MIS) module and the identification of learning differences among the two dominant cultural groups in higher education in the UK: Asian and European students. The identification of differences among knowledge patterns of these cultural groups is achieved through the application of a concept mapping technique. The research question addressed is: How can we internationalise the MIS module's content and teaching methods to provide for students from different cultural backgrounds.
