Abstract / Description

This paper summaries a 2005 study that aimed to ascertain the optimum mix of activities that can be undertaken in class sessions for part-time professional courses in business, with specific reference to the department of Management and Professional Development at London Metropolitan University. Courses in that department are delivered over 12 to 15 weeks and typically students take two modules simultaneously. Historically sessions for professional courses have been delivered over three-hour periods during weekday evenings from Monday to Friday.
