The focus of this study was to empirically investigate how virtual teams operate in an online MBA program. Building knowledge and skills required for a successful career is a central component of higher education, especially in business schools. Importantly, virtual teaming has been considered a useful method in meeting this educational demand. Given these needs, it is important to better understand the dynamic nature of virtual teaming. In terms of this study, data from content analyses, surveys, and interviews were divided into three key categories: (a) task, (b) social, and (c) technological dimensions. The findings indicated that pedagogical transformation of teaching and learning skills as well as a shifting mindset from residential programs to online environments is critical to the success of virtual teams.
