7 Advantages of Online Learning at BEBS
We live in a hectic world in which flexibility is the priority for most of us. We know that our students often juggle their careers with family and/or hobbies. At BEBS, we want everyone to have the opportunity to develop their talent. Hence, our online methodology has been designed to be as flexible as possible. If you enroll in one of our online programs, you can be sure you will be able to study at your own convenient time. You will just have to follow the deadlines provided in each module.
Online Live Sessions
At BEBS, we often talk about the importance of making meaningful connections to advance in your career. Additionally, it’s not always easy to keep the attention high with remote learning. Therefore, to make online learning more interactive, we have designed live sessions for each module. During the live sessions, you will be able to clarify all your doubts in real-time. Each module has 3 to 4 online sessions, and we always try to organize it in a way that people from different time zones can attend and have their international “classroom experience”.
Think of it as a virtual classroom, where you can shed light on any doubt you have. With the interactive forum, you will be able to share knowledge with professors and fellow classmates. You will be required to research specific topics that will be selected by professors. Different from what happens on live sessions, with the interactive forum you will be able to participate in discussions at your own pace, you will just have to meet the required deadlines that will be set up by professors.
Put in Practice What You Have Learned
During the whole duration of the program, you will have the opportunity to put in practice what you have learned. At the end of each module, you will have to solve a real case study, by providing your own analysis and solutions. Additionally, at BEBS, you will train your speech and presentation skills, so you can have a much closer experience to the real world. You will submit your case study with a 3/5 minutes video presentation. Furthermore, to earn your degree, you will be required to submit a final master project. We strongly encourage you to do the final project with your fellow classmates, so you can connect and interact with them. However, we know it is not always feasible, and in extraordinary cases, you can work on your final project alone.
One of the main perks of studying online with us is that you will have little to worry about prices. On the one hand, you won’t have to consider the living expenses of living in Barcelona. On the other, our online programs are more convenient than the on-campus experience. Plus, if you are a talented individual with an excellent academic or professional record, you can get in touch with us to discuss scholarships opportunities.
