This case study brings together results from two main pieces of research conducted on two cohorts of MA/MBA students. Master level students are expected to engage in peer learning to support and enhance their personal and professional development. Through the application of Social Network Analysis (SNA), the relational networks of learners were mapped and analysed together with their learning preferences.

Our findings clearly show that relational networks are predominantly built among learners belonging to the same ethnical group. When focusing on students undertaking their internships, surprisingly no association between the relative positions in networks and performance was found. Research findings were utilised to highlight implications for the development of teaching and learning strategies enabling postgraduate learners to master viable transferable skills.
