Abstract

This paper focuses on postgraduate courses, such as the MBA (Masters in Business Administration) or DMS (Diploma in Management Studies) where students have diverse levels of management experience and academic preparedness. Typically, some students have reached senior management positions but are conscious of their lack of formal qualifications or recent academic experience, whilst others have graduated within the last 2-3 years but can be equally intimidated by the industry experience of their peers. Northedge (2003:17) posed the question, "Is it possible to meet the needs of non-traditional students, whilst preserving intellectual standards and stretching the capabilities of more traditional students?" This paper reflects on Northedge’s response and the influence on my own teaching practice.
