In addition, the Learning Management System will facilitate your education through virtual classroom content and the latest technologies, like:
Course work can be varied. You'll have textbook readings, as well as group case studies, and individual and team projects, papers, and presentations. To support the collaborative learning environment, you'll be provided with a set of personalized web collaboration tools, and have easy access to video web conferencing.
You—and other students in your online cohort—may communicate with your instructor by e-mail anytime. You may also talk to faculty and staff through Internet chat, Skype, and the telephone. You may seek clarification, respond to questions raised, or introduce other matters. Your classmates may participate in your e-mail communications with your professor and, likewise, you may engage in discussions launched by others.
School of Business and Economics faculty members teach the on-campus and online programs. Our faculty experts have the professional and teaching experiences to ensure an invigorating and challenging course curriculum.
