The expansion of MBA degrees through online delivery was the focus of a recent “MTSU On the Record” radio program.
You can listen to their conversation via the SoundCloud link above.
Phillips is the author of an academic journal report that examines whether business schools are ethically obligated to develop an online presence to increase the numbers of students in their business administration master’s degree programs.
To make online learning more meaningful for students, especially those who are restricted by COVID-19 protocols, Phillips makes several suggestions to help facilitate the transition from in-classroom learning to online learning, including the use of discussion boards.
“These are tools that we use that are really designed to mimic the in-class experience,” Phillips said. “I can engage you in a discussion online that will enable you to feel a part of a conversation.”
The paper was published in April 2021 in the International Journal of Education and Social Science.
