BA (Hons) International Management (Blended Learning)
The BA (Hons) International Management blended learning programme is based on a practical and relevant approach to management, marketing, finance and international business.
It has been developed to reflect the need for working professionals who wish to enhance their educational qualifications but who would struggle attending a classic full-time or part-time programme.
The Block Delivery format allows us to offer a 3-year programme delivered through an online Virtual Learning Environment, supported by two weekend sessions per semester delivered by the lecturer.
Students can enter the Blended Learning programme at three points during the academic year: September, February and June, with two modules being taken in each semester. The programme
can be finished in 8 semesters of study.
Like all Prague College degrees, the BA (Hons) in International Management is an internationally-recognized British degree awarded by Teesside University (UK)
