Abstract / Description

The Business Education Research Group (BERG) was formed in December 2003 to focus on educational research and the experiences of students within the business domain. In the wake of the UK Government decision to increase HE participation through widening participation, BERG carried out research to examine business students’ expectations of the Higher Education experience. In addition, students’ reasons for non-attendance at lectures, the usefulness of new technology for students, the characteristics of academically excellent students, transferable skills and the value of work experience placements have all been explored and investigated. This paper provides a thematic representation of BERG research completed and published by summer 2008.
