Abstract

Much as in the business world, external motivation can have perverse results when applied in academic settings. Intrinsic motivations based on autonomy, mastery and purpose can help overcome dysfunctions. Examples from the business world and an MBA Management Accounting Course are used to illustrate.

Keywords: Motivation, teaching
