Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Management Program
There is provision in the PhD in Management that enables enrolled students to complete some modules by e-Learning. This is administered flexibly, however. For example, a student who is enrolled in the program and taking modules by means of the traditional face-to-face class teaching but who due to unforeseen circumstances such as, for example, a sudden change in the work situation, may apply to the Registrar to complete a limited number of the remaining modules by e-Learning. CASS Europe uses COURSESites by Blackboard as the platform for delivering the online learning. In such circumstances the institution will arrange for support tutorials to be provided to the student by academically qualified lecturers with the requisite e-Learning experience. Moreover, the institution will ensure that there is administrative support is in place on a regular basis for the student. The flexibility of e-Learning allows working professionals to successfully complete the program on time. It should be added that faculty members involved in course delivery through e-Learning are provided training in that field on a regular basis by way of in-house seminars on e-learning. Moreover, concerned faculty members are strongly encouraged to participate in e-Learning seminars and courses organized by other higher education institutions, the costs of which are fully borne by CASS Europe.
