Program and Course Format
Students may begin the program in the Fall, Spring or Summer semesters (August, January, or May). Generally, students will take six credit hours per semester.
All coursework can be completed fully online; please note that there are in-person global and experiential opportunities as well. Cutting-edge, digital courses are organized into learning episodes and are comprised of videos, video cases, podcasts, animations, and other pre-recorded content in addition to traditional reading assignments. Students progress within each learning unit at their own paces, but must complete the learning unit by assigned target dates.
For each course, students will participate in a one hour (per week) guided live classroom sessions, consisting of lectures, case discussions, and/or group activities. These live sessions are offered during evenings/weekends and are announced by the instructor at the beginning of each course. They also are recorded and made available to students within the digital platform. These sessions provide participants with real-time contact with faculty and other students. This mix of digital and live sessions maximizes learning and flexibility.
In addition, to live classroom discussions, faculty are available to students during online office hours offered through the digital classroom platform. Office hours afford students the opportunity to interact informally with faculty and ask questions about course material and assignment feedback.
