A study investigated how the diversity of a group of business administration students affected performance in and satisfaction about participation in a computerized business strategy game. Subjects were 129 small groups, composed of undergraduate and graduate students, in 21 class sections. Results showed diversity negatively affected group satisfaction, especially among undergraduates. Group dominance by one person also negatively affected performance. (Author/MSE)
