A Measure of Burnout for Business Students
Law, Daniel W.
Journal of Education for Business, v85 n4 p195-202 2010
The author surveyed 163 business students representing all business majors from a major state university. Participants completed a questionnaire utilizing a modified version of the Maslach Burnout Inventory. The data were factor analyzed to assess its basic underlying structure, and each burnout component was assessed for reliability. Results indicated that the 3-component model of burnout generally holds for business students, and the components demonstrated high internal consistency. Further, business students experienced extreme burnout levels prior to final exams. Implications for educators and others are provided along with recommendations for further research and application.
