This way we bring the Chicago Booth Approach to online learning to life.

How flexible is online learning?

Our programs are designed in a way so that they can adapt to your personal schedule. However, it is important to note that our programs have a fixed end date and that each module has assignments and forums that must be submitted within a specific timeframe. You will have assistance throughout the program in case you are unable to complete an assignment as a result of scheduling conflicts. If you are unable to complete an assignment as a result of scheduling conflicts, your mentor will be available to assist you. If you are unable able to attend live sessions, recordings will be uploaded to the virtual campus 24 hours after the session. Participants will be able to access the platform and materials for 30 days after the program ends.

Do you have live sessions?

Our live sessions are the perfect opportunity to connect with others, to share knowledge, and to participate in meaningful debate. During these sessions, you will be able to access additional content, learn from real-life case studies, and ask questions about projects and assignments.

A key part of online learning, live webinars, will be conducted by mentors and/or instructors. While these sessions are not compulsory to attend, they are highly recommended. Nevertheless, all webinars will be recorded and will be uploaded to the virtual campus 24 hours after the session. Where required, close captions and translated subtitles will be available a few days after the session.

What support will I receive while learning online?

For the full duration of the program or course, you will be assigned a mentor who will guide you throughout your learning journey, and who will be able to answer any questions you may have. You will be allowed to ask questions during live sessions with your mentor and instructors, and you will be able to consult with your mentor and your peers during live forums. Furthermore, our academic support team will be available to respond to any queries and to provide additional guidance and support.
