We are delighted to have had an opportunity to discuss our experiences with students' motivation during e-learning, primarily in the field of economics and business and share some of the research results with the broad conference participants. The paper: (1) analyzed possible reasons for enrolling in business school, (2) analyzed previous research regarding challenges with motivating students during e-learning, as well as issues that have been encountered by both teachers and students, (3) investigated if students are more motivated during traditional learning or e-learning, (4) explored if there is a difference between the level of motivation of high-school students when compared to university students, and (5) analyzed if the student’s level of motivation to engage in e-learning is correlated with the level of their digital competencies and skills.
