Abstract: The increase in diverse groups within organizations and their management has made it important for educators to teach diversity management from an alternative perspective. One of the aims of the diversity management course taught at undergraduate level was to teach students content that would enhance internalizing and retaining information and creating a class environment where mutual understanding among and between individuals and groups are fostered. In order to achieve this aim the class structure was formulated in terms of pre-lecture, during lecture and post-lecture activities. A survey was conducted over a period of two years with two different sets of undergraduate students responding to questions relating to the diversity management class structure. The results of the surveys indicated that the majority of students over the two year period were satisfied with the class structure.
