Master’s in International Business Management
2 years (4 semesters)
Language of studies:
Vistula’s online studies give you the possibility to gain the essential competences of next-generation business leaders and an internationally recognised qualification, without sacrificing personal, family, career or community commitments.
Our Mobile Studies are part-time flexible programmes that are of equal value to on-campus programmes, in terms of entry criteria and overall workload. The only difference is in the course delivery mode, which is an optimal mixture of:
– self-study sessions, designed as dynamic multimedia content that can be studied wherever and whenever convenient for a student,
– live sessions via webcam, to interact directly with classmates and faculty members, and to actively participate in discussions,
– on-campus activities (6 during the whole programme – during the Introduction Week, at the end of each semester, and during the Graduation Week), to complete the semester and develop critical business skills.
It should be highlighted that most assignments and learning exercises can be completed at the student’s convenience.
Online studies at Vistula University comply with the Regulation of the Minister of Science and Higher Education on distance learning (dated September the 25th, 2007, as amended). Graduates of Mobile Studies receive exactly the same diploma as other extra-mural students.
