Course Terms

Online courses are offered year-round in five, 8-week terms. For busy professionals seeking to advance their careers, online courses are ideal in terms of convenience and scheduling flexibility. The accelerated format of the program allows a student to complete the program in less than one year, if desired.

Each week's class contains an instructional module, comprised of pre-recorded audio/video lectures, readings from the required textbook(s), and assignments in many forms including quizzes, case studies and homework.

Students and faculty are able to meet in live virtual learning environments designed for distance education and collaboration with features that include audio, video, application sharing, group break-out rooms and content display.

An instructor-led threaded discussion board initiates the exchange of ideas and concepts relating to the course material.

Classes are capped at 20 students.
