People who work to find information in college have for at least 20 years tried to decide/figure out the different approaches to studying chosen by university students. A done or used by many people body of research now exists, with continued efforts to make better/make more pure the description, measurement, and connected drivers of the student's choices of possible study methods and strategies. More not very long ago, business teachers have drawn upon those solid basic structures on which bigger things can be built to explore how their students go about completing the needed things of their coursework. As a result, over the past ten years progress has been made toward our understanding of this important issue. However, the source of these books, magazines, etc. has generally been kept to/restricted to the accounting control/field of study, with students of that major serving as study people who were part of a study, etc. What is needed is a wider look at how business students from all the different fields of study approach their studies so that business teachers may also gain understanding of 1) what sort of differences exist among students from the major fields of study and 2) how our business majors' patterns of studying differ from students across the university. As a starting point for dealing with those two issues, this paper reports the results of depth interviews with upper-level business majors, in which people who were part of a study, etc. Describe the what, how, and why of their own approaches to studying. Enough information or physical objects that clearly prove something is found for these students' reliance on three established study orientations - deep, related to a plan to reach a goal, and surface - along with three added/more factors that influence choice of study approach, those of related to school and learning self-effectiveness, time spent, and general desire to do something/reason for doing something. The paper ends/decides by offering long/big suggestions for future research.
