This article evaluates the factors involved in the acceptance of Blended Learning (BL) with executives based on the Extended
Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT2) model in executive education. The empirical analysis uses
data from 307 responses to an online questionnaire by senior and middle-ranking managers. The confirmatory factor analysis
and structural equation modeling demonstrated the applicability of the UTAUT2 model in BL in executive education. The
results showed that hedonic motivation, performance expectancy, and effort expectancy predict the intention to adopt BL.
Results also prove no significant effect on social influence and habits. The relevance of this article is to contribute to the
understanding of the factors that influence the intention to adopt BL in a group not typically considered in higher education
