This study aims to identify how e-Portfolios can be integrated in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to promote a student-centered learning approach in their Business programmes. The researchers have a vast experience dealing with financial subjects that are characterised by their level of difficulty, as technical knowledge is required to ensure that students are able to grasp basic concepts that allow them getting a good understanding of their financial environment. Initial findings suggest that students have a strong desire to be more active in the classroom and that a learning by doing approach appears to be more appropriate when dealing with technical modules. Consequently, the incorporation of technology in the classroom via the use of e-Portfolios could help in the transitioning process from a teacher-centered pedagogy towards a classroom where students take responsibility of their own learning. Implementing e-Portfolios could help to develop students' self-discipline that is fundamental when dealing with complicated financial scenarios.
