Dr. Sut Sakchutchawan, associate professor of international business and director of the International Studies Program at Waynesburg University, was recently notified that his article, “Online vs. Traditional MBA: An Empirical Study of Students’ Characteristics, Course Satisfaction, and Overall Success,” was published in the December edition (volume 7, number 2) of The Journal of Human Resource and Adult Learning.

The Journal of Human Resource and Adult Learning is an international journal that aims to promote the understanding of the subject, provide an international forum for discussion and debate, and to stress the critical importance of people management to a wide range of global economy, multicultural issues, employee development and lifelong learning concerns.

Their mission is to share experiences in preparing professionals to lead, design, implement and evaluate learning programs within education, business, industry, government, military, health care and other public and private sector organizations.

As an MBA has become a popular postgraduate degree, Sakchutchawan’s article discusses the differences between seeking the degree online or traditionally. Sakchutchawan employed the quantitative method in his study to manage a number of questions. Data was gathered over an eight year period with 153 courses and more than 200,000 students.

“I hope this study helps recognize Waynesburg University as an active institution in terms of practical research in higher education,” he said.

In addition to a post doctorate in management from the University of Toledo, Sakchutchawan holds a Ph.D. from Union Institute and University. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Ramkhamhaeng State University, a Master of Arts degree from Thammasat State University and a master of business administration from National University.
