With an emphasis on supporting you as a working professional, MSEM Program's biggest advantages is its ultimate flexibility in terms of delivery formats. Classes can be taken anytime, anywhere with three different options so that you stay current on coursework
Lectures can be attended live on the main campus and at the many locations worldwide where they are broadcasted.
Student-Faculty & Student-Student Interaction
You can interact with the instructor and other students live while you are at your office or at home with the right equipment. All classes are supported by an online learning management system which allows chat sessions, email and threaded discussions throughout the semester. Many faculty arrange a live meeting periodically during the semester at convenient locations around the world. Students are encouraged to join these “research rap” sessions.
Since live classroom sessions are recorded and stored on our dedicated servers you have the ability to review any given session when you need it. CBU distance education technologies also provide you with a wider selection of courses and faculty located throughout the world.
All three of these delivery modes can be mixed and matched throughout the semester, making the program very convenient for students with heavy business travel schedules AND international students alike.
Local or Online
If you are interested in taking an online class conducted on another one of the 100+ Christian Brothers (Lasallian) Colleges, or from another accredited institution, simply consult with your program advisor for arrangements and transfers of credit toward your degree. You will have the same service and benefits as a student in the traditional classroom. Like all CBU students, you will be taught and mentored in the Lasallian tradition and will be able to benefit from working with excellent teachers and individualized attention in the convenience of a virtual learning environment.
Of course you always have the opportunity to take classes in a traditional classroom at the beautiful CBU Memphis Campus. There’s nothing like contemplating a new technical strategy while planning a visit to the home of the Blues and birthplace of Rock & Roll just a few blocks away. Need we even mention Memphis Barbeque? If you are attending live at the Memphis campus, you will be provided dinner from our cafeteria as part of the tuition fee.
All students will be provided the course textbook either hardcopy or electronic format (when available), as part of the tuition fee.
***We recommend that working professionals take the 33-credit-hour non-thesis option and full-time candidates or those intending to pursue a career in research, the 33-hour thesis option.
