Online LU Business Courses
There is no on-campus requirement for the online H.B.Com program. All courses, except for the internship, are delivered using leading-edge online technology that provides students with the benefits of both independent study and interactive learning.
The online LU business courses make extensive use of the Internet and discussion forums, encouraging students to take an active part in their learning experience. Students are usually required to complete online group projects and to participate in weekly online discussions with other students and the course instructor. Most of the discussions will be asynchronous where students log on at different intervals in the day to post and respond to messages.
In each online course, students will be divided into groups of five to ten students. One instructor will be responsible for a class of approximately 40 students (4 to 8 groups). Course administrators are appointed to interact with instructors and ensure quality and consistency of course delivery across sections. Students will routinely communicate with their instructor and, if necessary, with the course administrator.
Six-credit courses typically consist of 11 modules delivered over a 13-week period. Newly introduced 3-credit courses such as RK1 and PT1 will consist of 6 modules delivered over a 13-week period. Each module requires approximately 15 hours to complete. Supporting material such as textbooks and business cases will be provided by your provincial/territorial CGA affiliate or international Program Office one to two weeks after you enroll for a course. Students must arrange their own Web connection through their local Internet Service Provider (ISP).
Evaluation of the learning process varies with each course. Course grades will include marks for individual and group work, participation and contribution to discussion forums, and a final examination.
