This paper examines the influence of two distinct group work management strategies on finance students' attitudes towards group work and their perceptions of generic skill development. Using quantitative and qualitative data, comparisons are made between students who experienced a supportive group work environment and students who experienced an unsupportive group work environment. The findings demonstrated that students had a more positive attitude towards group work and perceived greater benefits to their generic skill development when involved in a supported group work environment as opposed to an unsupported group work environment. Although the qualitative analysis reinforced many of the quantitative findings, there was some evidence that unsupported group activities may, in some instances, have the benefit of promoting the development of organizational skills.
