Graduate Business Students Perceptions of Online Learning: A Five Year Comparison

, , ,

Delta Pi Epsilon Journal Volume 50, Number 3, ISSN 0011-8052


This study compared graduate business students' access to online graduate programs and their perceptions relating to online learning over a five-year period. Student input was provided during 2001 and 2006. Students in 2006 had greater access to entire graduate programs being offered online than did the 2001 students. The students in 2006 felt more strongly than the 2001 students that more time was needed to complete course work related to online courses than was needed for traditional courses. The 2006 students also felt more strongly that the quality of online courses was better than traditional courses, and they indicated they were more likely than the 2001 group to recommend online learning to friends. Both groups of students indicated that the main reasons they enrolled in online courses were for scheduling convenience and avoiding travel to campus for class. (Contains 8 tables.)
