Blended Methodology

A SMART LEARNING FORMAT

Our approach isn’t just online and it isn’t just on campus – it’s blended. We align and combine the best of technology, methodology and our world-class faculty, so you can experience multi-layered learning in a multi-faceted environment.

Our blended methodology combines live videoconferences, interactive forums, and activities with face-to-face modules in various locations around the world. By bringing together the best of online and in-person courses, we provide students with an unconventional educational experience so that you can learn in the same  way you work, because the business world is no longer confined to physical spaces.

Our videoconferences provide a personalized learning experience that adapts to the needs of modern professionals by providing distance learning in an up-close and personal real time experience. The small group sizes, along with the nature of our videoconferences, provide a sense  of proximity that simulates the in-classroom experience. Instead of a conventional approach to online lectures, students participate in case study analyses to actively engage with the material. Your professors will create a stimulating learning environment in which you will feel encouraged to participate. Our technology contributes to this by featuring classmates as they participate, and dividing the classroom into smaller groups to discuss specific topics.

Within the online component of the course, we make room for more face-to-face interaction with group work and case study analyses as well as asynchronous discussion forums. Students present their group findings to the class, just as they would in a physical classroom. By participating in online forums, students are able to engage with their fellow classmates, pose meaningful questions, and respond to the professor.

WHAT BLENDED HAS TO OFFER

Is it part-time? Is it online? Is it in-person? No, it’s blended.

As our world becomes increasingly interconnected and fast-paced, we understand that professionals face unique challenges in the modern-day classroom.
With this in mind, we have developed our blended methodology as a new way to approach the learning experience. Blended learning combines online learning with face-to-face interaction, so that students are free to customize their education so that it fits seamlessly into their lives.

FLEXIBILITY TO SUIT YOUR LIFESTYLE

Today’s dynamic professionals need flexible programs that adapt to their circumstances. Our portfolio offers different formats that suit different lifestyles. Your education should enhance and complement your global career, which is why with our blended methodology, you can combine your professional life with your academic experience.

DON’T PUT YOUR LIFE OR CAREER ON HOLD

One of the main benefits of the blended methodology is balance, whether it be at work, in academics, or in your personal life. The blended approach gives you the freedom to advance your career while simultaneously pursuing a valuable, meaningful education.

THE LATEST TECHNOLOGIES IN EDUCATION

You’ll never feel like you’re missing out on the physical classroom experience with the variety of tools offered. With online activities, video chats, and more, our online platform is innovative and interactive. Our forums are unique, with professors tracking participation and students encouraged to engage.

BECAUSE LIFE IS BLENDED

Your life is already a blend of digital and physical interactions: you buy tickets for a concert on an app, schedule work meetings using an online calendar, and collaborate with coworkers in person and via email. Why not approach education in the same way? The mix of remote and in-person collaboration prepares professionals for real-world experiences in executive leadership.
