BSBI offers several undergraduate online courses that are designed to provide you with all the relevant skills and knowledge needed to make an impact on the modern business world. All the bachelor programmes are formulated with three concepts in mind - enterprise, leadership and success.

All the undergraduate programmes employ hands-on teaching techniques including industry visits. The course curriculums provide a practical understanding of business concepts that can be used in real contexts.

In addition, we have refined our overall lesson aids and VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) presence, whilst we have reinforced our Student Support Services Team with additional members so that they can deal with more students more comfortably, if needed. Moreover, we have introduced in the faculty an additional team of tutors (beyond formal teaching) in order to provide students with support.

Importance of having an undergraduate degree

The Economic Council reported in 2019 that there were 19.8 million tertiary education students in Europe. Among them, 61% of the students were pursuing bachelor’s programmes. The report also suggested that nearly a quarter of the students were pursuing business, management or law specialisations for their undergraduate degrees.

Bachelor’s degree programmes in business disciplines like economics, digital marketing or business management are incredibly relevant today owing to the rising complexities in the modern business world. Pursuing a business-oriented undergraduate degree can give you the required exposure and knowledge needed to establish a business career.

 

How it works: Synthetic Hybrid Online Model

Through this model, designed by Prof. Dr. Kyriakos Kouveliotis, all programmes can be realised fully online. The model combines both “Synchronous” and “Asynchronous” learning on a parallel didactic route. The same model can run as “Blended” by substituting the “Synchronous” part that takes place live via the platform with face-to-face teaching in the classroom.

The Synchronous part includes:

  • Live lectures*
  • Case studies
  • Multimedia & education videos
  • Interactive exercises
  • Simulations
  • Group activities

The Asynchronous part includes:

  • Pre-recorded video lectures*
  • Selected bibliography
  • Multimedia & educational videos
  • Collection of web resources
  • Didactic material, e-books, scientific papers
  • Presentations

*for every pre-recorded video lecture there will be a live online lecture in real time.
