How do students’ perceive the quality of their transnational program?

June 11, 2012

Congratulations to TRU M.Ed. alumni (2010) Margaret Hohner and Associate Professor Peter Tsigaris who have their paper entitled: “Students Perception of Quality for a Business Program Delivered in Canada and China”published in the Journal of International Education in Business. The paper originated from Margaret’s thesis in the Masters of Education program at Thompson Rivers University for which Peter Tsigaris was the supervisor.

The study investigates the beliefs of undergraduate business students studying in Canada and partners in China about the quality of the program; what they consider effective signals of quality; and their willingness to pay to improve the quality. The research provides important information to monitor quality and to place a value on pursuing accreditation and tuition fee increases. The full article will be available shortly.

This is the second paper they have published together and they have another one in the works. Peter is enthusiastically looking to supervise new students in the M Ed program. Please contact him at to discuss thesis ideas he has in mind or your own ideas!
