As more and more colleges and universities offer courses designed in the e-leaming format, quality of instruction and student performance are becoming, progressively more, issues that need to be addressed. This study is an attempt to add to the literature on student performance in traditional and e-learning environments as well as exploring student-centered and learner-centered as an instructional strategy. A causal-comparative design was chosen for this study to examine the effects of instructional strategies on student performance in two upper-level core business courses developed in both traditional and e-learning formats. The study spanned 3 years, beginning fall 2004 through spring 2007 and participants included 293 declared business majors who were enrolled in various sections of Organizational Behavior and International Management courses during the study period. Data analyses revealed non significant differences in student performance based on delivery method and course. However, quite the reverse was found when examining student performance against instructional strategies.
