21st Century Summer School:
The days of sitting in a summer school classroom on a beautiful, sunny day may finally be over. Webster University's School of Business and Technology is using technology and travel to give summer learning a whole new look.
This summer, Webster is offering three hybrid courses that combine online graduate coursework with an international study tour that takes students to Geneva, London or China. The courses are open to current graduate students, alumni or anyone interested in enrolling in this unique learning experience.
"This is a whole new dimension in distance learning," said Benjamin Ola. Akande, dean of Webster University's School of Business and Technology. "Global commerce has become a reality of our modern world. These hybrid courses provide an excellent and convenient way for students to acquire a solid foundation in how different economies work around the world. By including a week's tour of the overseas market being studied, we are able to expose students first-hand to the concepts and cultures that drive international business."
The cost for all three programs includes $1,620 tuition for three credit hours, plus a program fee ranging from $525 to $1,000. Registration deadlines are:
These courses are ideal for anyone who is interested in international commerce and wants to get a feel for how business is conducted in other markets," said Akande. "By combining the online coursework with an on-site tour, we have created the ultimate learning experience for graduate students this summer."
