International Journal of Management in Education (IJMIE), Vol. 7, No. 3, 2013

Abstract: Nowadays, universities are making a great effort orienting their strategies to the market. In this line, they are adopting new technologies and even offering virtual degrees. This research tries to analyse whether the market orientation of virtual universities leads them to increase student's trust towards the institution, the affective and calculative commitment of the students and, in summary, the future intention to use of the services that University provides. These issues are of great interest because of the increasing competition in educational market brought by the European Space for Higher Education and widely use of new technologies.
