An Examination of Program Selection Criteria for Part-Time MBA Students
Colburn, Michael; Fox, Daniel E.; Westerfelt, Debra Kay
College and University, v87 n2 p24-33 Fall 2011
Prospective graduate students select a graduate program as a result of a multifaceted decision-making process. This study examines the selection criteria that part-time MBA students used in selecting a program at a private university. Further, it analyzes the methods by which the students first learned of the MBA program. The authors posed the following research questions: (1) What are the factors that affect student selection of a part-time MBA program?; (2) How do gender, age, years between bachelor's and master's work, and location of campus impact the choice of a program and/or institution?; and (3) What methods do people use to identify graduate programs, and how do gender, age, years between bachelor's and master's work, and location of campus impact these methods? (Contains 6 tables and 1 figure.)
