Abstract: In this cross national study, 846 university students’ preferences and perceptions of two instructional orientations--Student as Product and Student as Customer--were contrasted. Students from Argentina, West Indies, Canada, Egypt and the US were included. Overall, academic major, gender, and age were not significantly related to student preferences and perceptions of their educational experience. The results indicate that students from the Western Hemisphere share many educational preferences and perceptions for the two instructional orientations not shared by Egyptian students. However, students from all five countries were in agreement that their instructors did not treat them as customer.
