The research applies the Management Education by Internet Readiness scale (Parnell & Carraher, 2003) to discriminate between two groups of undergraduate university students: those in an internet-based business education programme and those in a traditional classroom-based business education programme. Discriminant analysis was conducted using membership in the two groups as the grouping variable. The resulting model has an accuracy of greater than 70% and provides a cut-off score which can be used by programme administrators, instructors, and prospective students to assess student readiness for Internet-based business education.
