Have you ever felt desperate because of mutually inclusive demands on your time? For example: You have to meet with your case group for a Master of Business Administration (MBA) class, and as you are leaving work, your boss asks you to prepare a report that would take at least an hour to finish. I am sure this has happened to many of you on several occasions. This conflict exemplifies why it is so important that we, as workers and/or students, start to make use of information technology and virtual communities. This article presents some background, including definitions about virtual communities, the sense of virtual community and groups that have been created to follow an Internet connection, including e-MBAs. The use of technology in an MBA program is described as a practical application. Then the article suggests a future path to resolve the conflict, and finishes with the conclusion.
