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, to be able to gain their degree.
Our Blended programme delivery offers you the best experience of a Prague College education by combining regular studies in our immersive Digital Campus, supplemented by 2 weekend residential sessions per semester in Prague.
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, taking the standard 3-years to complete.
Like all Prague College degrees, the BA (Hons) in International Management is an internationally-recognised British degree awarded by Teesside University (UK).
Students and graduates receive generous exemptions towards the professional qualification CIMA and can continue tuition towards these exams while at Prague College or after graduation. There is also the option to progress to the MSc International Management programme, which is also offered in flexible study modes.
