Newson, E. F. Peter; Parent, Michael; Schneberger, Scott
This paper discusses the unique challenges posed by executives in MBA (Masters of Business Administration) programs and how these challenges can be met insofar as the core information technology (IT) course is concerned, drawing on the experience of the teachers' across four programs, live and on video, over two years, involving more than 250 executive participants. The first section of the paper provides background, including: assumptions about students and course structure; implications for course design related to student learning objectives, student attitude/values, content, structure, experience, time, and evaluation; and the executive MBA environment for this study, as well as issues specific to IT. The student evaluation scheme for a course designed from these assumptions, implications, and environment is presented, including criteria for class participation, learning log, group presentation, and technology book article. An outline of an eight-session information management course is appended. (MES)
