Linardopoulos, Nikolaos
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Drexel University
This study examined the perceptions of online education held by internal stakeholders (students, faculty and administration) of an online MBA program at a major urban university. Specifically, factors that affect the students' decision to enroll in an online program as well as the variables that affect the faculty decision to teach online courses were examined. In addition, the overall attitude towards online education held by students, faculty and the administration was examined. The results indicate that students and the administration view online education very favorably. Faculty members, while also endorsing online education conveyed the need for more ways to interact with students and expressed workload concerns. Implications and possible further research areas for the development of online programs and courses in the future are discussed.
