Abstract

Student perceptions, opinions and preferences are important for the academic environment as well as for instructors and educators. For this reason an evaluation was made in relation to the educational situation of didactic and evaluation methods used by the instructors, the interaction of students and instructors and instructor commitment and behavior. A questionnaire, with 60 affirmatives and answers structured by means of a Likert scale, was given to 213 students who were representative of a four year management course in a private university in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil. Factor analysis was used to evaluate the student opinions that revealed a preference for the structure and facility of instruction, evaluation strategies, course planning and learning strategies.
