Postgraduate Study and Managers' Subsequent Work Experience: An Exploratory Evaluation
Andrews, Jane; Harris, Margaret
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v34 n4 p427-438 Aug 2009
Drawing on an exploratory qualitative study, this article considers the link between business school teaching at graduate level and subsequent work behaviour and experiences of former students. It evaluates the student experience some time "after" graduation. The findings of the retrospective evaluation point to the value of classroom peer discussion, the testing of ideas against prior work experience and the opportunity to make sense of organisational issues by setting them into broader context. The importance of andragogical approaches to teaching is discussed as well as the implications of the study findings for teaching quality enhancement. (Contains 1 table and 1 note.)
