The Index of Learning Styles (ILS) instrument based on the Felder-Silverman Learning Style Model was used to compare distribution of learning styles of business students in the United States and the Dominican Republic. Results show that majority of business students have a balanced learning style in each of the four learning styles dimensions examined. Difference in learning style preference between United States and Dominican Republic was statistically significant only for the sensing-intuitive and active-reflective dimensions of the FelderSilverman model. The knowledge of statistically significant difference in learning styles of the U.S. and non-U.S. students may help American faculty pay attention to special needs of international students attending universities in the U.S.
