Abstract: Due to the fact that not all learning can be provided through formal education on campus or schools, colleges and institutions of higher education, distance education has become a viable alternative. In this regard we have seen a rapid expansion of distance education programmes at traditional face-to-face institutions, becoming dual mode institutions. Therefore, if students are to learn on the distance education mode, they need effective educational and administrative support. This implies that the management approach used by dual mode institutions will differ from conventional face-to-face institutions. The aim of this paper is to identify a managerial distance education model for the NUST. In order to develop a managerial distance education model, a distinction will be made between the macro and micro management level of distance education management. Each of these levels will be discussed in terms of certain distance education criteria identified. The current distance education model will be evaluated against the normative distance education model identified. The paper will be concluded in terms of a number of recommendations made to improve the current distance education situation at the NUST.
