This qualitative study conducted in 2009 aimed to examine the process of Management of Distance Education held in the Higher Education Institution Faculdade Ideal in order to ascertain customer satisfaction (students) and the management team (clerks, teachers and principais) in relation to the quality (efficiency and effectiveness) of the processo In this sense, through a case study, the research was conducted in two stages: first, a bibliographic and documental researches were done for theoretical base documental appropriation that allowed the knowledge of the IES in question, in the second stage were performed participant observation, interviews and questionnaires and the submission of those involved in the process to questionnaires at the IES, which provided data collection and subsidized the development of the theoretical and textual analysis performed. After the investigation, we come to the conclusion that the IES develops some strategies of knowledge management that enable the development and sustenance of competences that can promote it. We also observed that the management model adopted promotes quality education (EAD) - efficient and effective -, satisfying the participants of the process, who assessed the areas of responsibility as good and excellent. Furthermore, it was discovered that the strength of the management model adopted is sustained in the areas of quality associated with technology. The analysis of the data allowed some inferences: the quality and technology fields with high leveis of approval by the management team whereas the students evaluated the quality as great and the other fields as good, that is, three out of four students are satisfied or very satisfied with the quality of distance education offered at the IES. It shows that they are fulfilled and satisfied customers as for the quality of services offered and their educational needs. However, it was discovered that the respondents could not identify the type of management adopted by the IES. We also found that the company has no way of reward or recognition for managing the knowledge of institutional intellectual capital. Therefore, the conclusion is that this work enabled the researcher this intense reflection, leading her to rethink her own professional-academic work. It is also necessary to inform you that we did not have claim to address ali the issues that permeate the discussion of this issue, bringing up, quite simply, pointing them out as relational. Thus, it is expected that this research will serve as guidance for other researchers in the field of educational management of EAD and that it, unlike becoming just another production on the shelves of academia, will raise further discussions and further debates in the area, some disquieting awakening and shed a new light on distance education quality (efficient and effective).
