Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference paperpeer-review


Engaging students in an online environment presents many challenges. More so, in Master of Business Administration education due to the demanding nature of the course and the profile of the students. Whilst the challenges have been
well discussed in research, little attention has been paid to the way in which to engage learners in this environment. This paper proposes a Model for MBA Student Engagement in Online Studies. The Model provides a framework for understanding the range of engagement factors that influence a student’s MBA journey. The Model also considers the types of data that need to be understood in order to understand online learner behaviour and offer insights which can inform teaching pedagogy and practices.
