dc.description.abstract This paper is a case study of the academic performance of two groups of postgraduate students. Group A was taught by online mode and Group B by face-to-face method, by the same lecturer, in a master's degree programme in educational administration, at The University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona. The course "Theories of Organizations" is a one-semester course usually offered in the first semester every academic session. The performances of the two groups of postgraduate students were compared in the mid-semester, end-of-semester, and the overall assessments. It was found that the online students performed better than face-to-face students in the mid-semester assessment, while face-to-face students performed better than online students in the final assessment. The final overall results for the course indicated a significant difference in the performance of both groups of students, with the face-to-face group having a better overall performance than the online group. This paper also discussed the problems encountered by both groups of students, other problems identified by the course lecturer, and the implications of all the findings for postgraduate education at UWI and in the Caribbean region en
