FAQ’s

1Are the degrees / qualifications the same as those offered on campus?

ANSWER :

Yes, the standards of the qualifications offered online and on campus are equivalent. All qualifications are the awards of the internationally recognized awarding bodies/Universities. When learners complete their B.Sc/MBA their diploma and university transcript will say "BSc (Hons) Business Management"/"Master of Business Administration," just like learners who earn the B.Sc/MBA on campus.

2Who are the faculty teaching on the online programmes?

ANSWER :

Online courses are developed and taught by qualified faculty. All of the faculty members are approved by the Awarding Body/University before teaching on the programme. Every faculty member holds at least a Master's Degree or above in a field related to the subject he/she teaches. Most faculty also have significant teaching and industry experience.

3Are the courses self-paced?

ANSWER :

No, the online courses are not self-paced. Each course begins on a fixed day at the start of a semester and ends on the last day of a semester. Most modules are normally spread over 8/10 weeks(may vary in some cases). Students will have a course schedule with assignments due throughout the term on specified dates.

However, learners do have flexibility each week in deciding when they access the online material; in addition there are live class sessions that meet at set times online.

4Will I need to travel abroad to complete my degree?

ANSWER :

No. Learners will not be required to leave their home countries. They can complete their qualification/degree staying at home.

5What is it like to take an online class?

ANSWER :

In a typical online course, the faculty will have an online syllabus that outlines the assignments and course activities on a weekly schedule. Most courses will combine assigned readings from text books and other materials, online exercises, problems, or activities put together by the faculty, interactive discussions on cases, situations, or questions posed by the faculty, and assigned group or individual projects or papers. In a normal week, learners will be expected to attend the live lectures and tutorials, complete the assigned readings from the text book and other resources, go over the lecture notes, live interactive audio meetings provided and participate in the asynchronous discussion boards. In certain weeks assignments may be due. These have to be turned in on time to avoid penalty.

ANSWER :

Online interaction can be done through “chat” or “real time interactive audio conversations” with the faculty and other learners in the class”.
