|Abstract:||Originality/Value: Our research provides insights to success factors for distance education. |
Purpose: We look at the effectiveness of leadership education on distance. Our main purpose is to study if theories and methodologies taught are put into use and to what extent. We also look at the relevance of the topics. Another purpose is to assess effectiveness and success factors of distance education.
Methodology/Approach: Quantitative and qualitative analysis of data from questionnaire responses sent to former students and complemented with some interviews of the same students.
Findings: Our research indicates that leadership knowledge can be transferred effectively from theory to practise by distance education. Starting from the reality of the student is an important success factor. Quick feedback; which is individual; balanced and critical; is also important.
