Innovations in higher education include improvements in existing pedagogies and developing new pedagogies based on the subject to be taught. Depending on the age, gender, regional background, the effective teaching and learning methods may be different. Business schools are providing higher education to improve the necessary skills of the student either to start a new business or to manage an existing business effectively by means of making effective decisions on a business problem by considering the business environments effectively. Experimental learning is a new pedagogy in business management learning method where students are exposed to real business problems and made them as part of the decision-making team.
