Understanding what learning style preferences exist in international business classrooms is important for the overall design of learning objectives and learning outcomes in business education. This is especially important as 94% of the global learner population moved online in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the majority of business learners. The study used the Felder-Silverman Model of learning styles to investigate business learners in a hospitality discipline in the United States (n = 365) and in Singapore (n = 154). Findings revealed that two learning styles of business learners were significantly different between the two data sets. The results of this study contribute to the understanding of learning preferences of business students and how learning styles across these two cultures may assist instructors in the overall design of their international business classes.
