Business Management degrees online with the Open University of Switzerland

Mid Morning Mix // Education // July 13, 2017


Studying virtually is becoming increasingly popular. Perhaps the advantages of a more flexible schedule and cheaper costs are the cause, but online learning also has a certain stigma attached to it and more traditional parents often want their children to do a more traditional campus-based degree, explains Prof. Habib Al Souleiman & Prof. Ibrahim Al Souleiman, of the Open University of Switzerland.

They join us in the studio to talk about online learning and their experiences working at both traditional campus-based universities and setting up this open, online university.
