The goal was to propose appropriate learning methods to implement in virtual and physical
classrooms if face-to-face sessions were reinstated in Indonesia and Philippines. Moreover, it provides
information on how to use blended learning modalities effectively for business management students
in the educational system in ASEAN countries. This study employed a descriptive research design. It
is a quantitative study of the elements that influence the effectiveness of blended learning in the
educational system for business management. All data were collected using a digital questionnaire
using a Google Forms link scannable with a QR code. To detect significant differences in the
variables, SPSS was used to summarize, analyze, and interpret data using one-way ANOVA statistical
treatment. Four hundred eight (408) participants from Indonesia and the Philippines share similar and
differing ideas on applying effective blended learning to their respective educational systems. There
are no results that strongly agree or disagree with effective and ineffective blended learning. As a
result, most business management students adapt studying differently than the traditional classroom,
whereas some struggle with virtual learning. Thus, Indonesia and Philippine educational systems must
continue to provide a mixed physical and virtual classroom. The results will immensely benefit public
and private educational institutions in developing post-pandemic teaching practices. The findings
could be used to develop a foundation for understanding the factors influencing effective and hybrid
blended learning in the educational system for post-pandemic business management students.
