THE PERCEPTIONS OF SELECTED UNIVERSITY ADMINISTRATORS ON ECONOMIC AND ASSOCIATED DECISION-MAKING FACTORS RELATED TO INSTITUTIONAL INVOLVEMENT IN DISTANCE EDUCATIONThe Pennsylvania State University CiteSeerX Archives; Miriam Elizabeth Guthrie; David R. Ford; Susan G. Magliaro; D. Mike Moore; Thomas W. Wilkinson; Miriam E. Guthrie (2008-07-01)This study investigated the perceptions of Chief Financial Officers and primary Distance Education Administrators on economic and institutional decision-making factors influencing institutional involvement in distance education, and the economic readiness criteria and business plan components necessary for institutions to be strategically successful in distance education. Data were collected via an online questionnaire from a sample of 151 Carnegie Foundation Classified Doctoral/Research Institutions—Extensive. Responses from 80 institutions (31 Chief Financial Officers and 72 Distance Learning Administrators) indicated that 78.6 % of all institutions planned to increase their institutional involvement in distance education and 19.4 % planned to maintain their current involvement in distance education. This study indicated that administrators should consider the role that economic and other institution-related decision-making factors play in distance education, particularly in assessing reasons for institutional involvement and plans to not start, maintain or increase distance education activities. Statistically significant relationships were found to exist between an institution’s plans for not starting, maintaining or increasing distance education

Business Schools in an Age of GlobalisationParker L.; Guthrie J. (2010)Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to consider the role of the business school now and in the future. Design/methodology/approach – The paper takes the form of an editorial review and argument. Findings – The paper acknowledges the impact of globalization and “marketization” on business schools. Research limitations/implications – The editorial offers scope for accounting academics to engage with the university and protect against business school corporatization and/or privatization. This is an important issue in higher education, not only in Australia, but internationally. Originality/value – The paper provides important empirical data and research information to scholars in the interdisciplinary accounting field of research about the future for business schools.
