Dr Ineke Clasina Kranenburg - Thesis title: "Class Size and its Effect on Learning in Business Education."
This thesis explores the multi-dimensional nature of class size and how educational processes are shaped by different class size environments in four undergraduate business courses. Class size significantly influenced how curricula were structured and designed for learning and consequently students' course expectations and learning experiences in large and small classes.
