This developmental paper outlines the process, framework and rationale used to redesign the curriculum, pedagogy and use of digital technologies in a large-scale online MBA. This holistic approach was anchored in extensive research with students, alumni and business leaders, was guided by a newly developed ethos and themes, and was grounded in sociomaterial theory. It provides evidence of a shift in market conditions, including increasing student expectations regarding online learning and rising demand for leadership, ethical practice and innovation. It proposes ways in which institutions can realign their curricula with current and future needs, and methods to enrich the online student experience via learning technologies. Its findings are likely to be of interest either to educators who are considering curriculum change or institutions looking to enhance their digital offering.
