Many courses today employ a method of distance learning. As course content evolve rapidly, business models and managerial challenges are formed, it is relatively difficult to maintain a rigorous and rigid curriculum with effective outcomes in business schools. This paper reports on the work undertaken by a university business school incorporating a distance learning model curriculum. We examine how students were given the opportunity to develop their analytical, decision-making and group work skills in particular class. Our findings indicate that the distance learning trend can yield significant benefits in education and valuable skills and practices for use in the real world.
