Quality of Undergraduate Management Studies in a Changing University Environment
Skudiene, Vida
Quality of Higher Education, v2 p166-173 2005
The environment for teaching management in Baltic States' universities has undergone profound changes. The factors involved are: greater interaction between classroom teaching and the "real world", market expansion, internationalization, and increasingly diverse students. The author reports on the survey findings from the three management higher education institutions: ISM University of management and economics (Lithuania), Riga Teacher Training and Educational Management Academy (Latvia), and Estonian Business School (Estonia). The responses of undergraduate management educators indicate that, despite clear indications of greater attention and increased interest in the quality of university teaching in the past decade, lecture and classroom discussion are the dominant instructional techniques. Many of the respondents indicated that they had changed their instructional techniques in the direction of innovative teaching projects, and almost a third of the respondents have taken a course to improve teaching quality.
