The implementation of Merdeka Belajar Kampus Merdeka (MBKM/Emancipated Learning) with a form of learning activity that is more involved in community life and a hybrid learning model is very likely to influence student learning outcomes. This study explores the impact of implementing the MBKM program, which emphasizes a learning approach integrated with community life and adopts a hybrid learning model. The objectives of this study are to analyze the determinants of students’ learning outcomes in the context of MBKM through hybrid learning and assess factors that affect student learning outcomes in the same learning model. The methodology used was a quantitative survey design. These research steps involved questionnaires that had been proven valid and reliable for data collection. The collected data was then analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics, with path analysis techniques to understand the relationship between the variables studied. The results reveal that 1) The learning model has a significant influence on student learning outcomes; 2) Learning motivation has a significant effect on learning outcomes; 3) MBKM structure contributes significantly to learning outcomes; 4) The learning model has a significant effect on learning motivation, and 5) MBKM structure affects student learning motivation significantly.
