Students from over 35 countries have been admitted to the international M.Sc. programs of the Aarhus School of Business, and only a minority of the admitted students is Danish. Therefore, in the Winter of 2003, the study coordinators of these three programs (Professor Carsten Tanggaard for FIB, Professor Karsten Engsig Sørensen for EU, Professor Hans Jørn Juhl for BPM) met with Assistant Professor Maria Anne Skaates and Mr. Steen Weisner of the ASB International Office to discuss the opportunities and problems that serving such an international body of students presents as well as, probably more importantly, to discuss ASB instructors' knowledge gaps concerning the educational background of many of these students.
At the meeting, it was agreed that Maria Anne Skaates would develop a research questionnaire to study of this student body and their perceptions of their education. The methodology of the study has been presented in a previous ASB working paper by Maria Anne Skaates. Its title and publication information are as follows:
"The Theoretical, Methodological, and Practical Background for Looking at International Students' Learning Styles, Backgrounds, and Quality Perceptions with Regard to ASB's Three English-Language M.Sc. Program", Aarhus School of Business, Working Paper 04-1 of the Department of International Business, IBBN 1396-8149.
On the basis of the theoretical foundation laid in the first working paper, this paper will present the empirical results of the study.
