E-hancing the Master of Business Administration (MBA) Managerial Accounting Course
Zabriskie, Fern H.; McNabb, David E.
Journal of Education for Business, v82 n4 p226-233 Mar-Apr 2007
Professional education, including managerial accounting education, at independent colleges and universities faces two challenges: (a) meeting shifting demand with static or declining resources and (b) ensuring that graduates gain the technological knowledge and skills that they need to succeed in their future careers. For many schools, the decision to adopt distance learning in place of traditional classroom instruction has generated more problems than solutions; some distance learning programs have been described as sterile, lonely, and unfulfilling experiences. However, there are a number of alternative approaches that may enhance MBA programs without creating these drawbacks. In this article, the authors describe 1 alternative: using technology-enhanced learning modules that draw on the best of both distance and on-site learning. (Contains 2 figures and 1 table.)
