MacFarland, Thomas W.
This study examined the educational quality and student satisfaction with the undergraduate program in professional management at Nova Southeastern University (Florida). This program focuses on the needs of working adults, and classes are offered evenings and weekends at multiple sites in a distance education format. A survey of nearly all of the professional management students attending class during spring 1997 obtained 454 responses. The survey centered on student satisfaction with the academic program and student services. Overall, respondents indicated that they were generally pleased with their program. Satisfaction was highest for areas related to instruction, program delivery, faculty, and the learning environment. Respondents were less satisfied with the use of technology, library services, financial aid, and counseling. Appended are the survey and tables detailing the study's methodology and findings.
