The Bachelor of Commerce in Supply Chain Management is a three-year distance learning course. This future-focused degree allows students to choose between different delivery options — based on their needs.
Option 1: Distance learning
For students who want to work independently, this choice is ideal. The degree can be earned in a hybrid style, which makes it perfect for students who are already employed but want to improve their skills. Modules for the distant learning option include workshops, tutorials, self-directed reading, and case study analysis. The workshop sessions are conducted in a hybrid style with online and in-person classes. This allows scholars to connect and fosters collaborative intelligence.
(Regions where there is enough demand, hold in-person classes.)
Option 2: Rich-distance learning
This choice is best for the normal school-leaving student who values independence, close relationships with teachers and peers, and the rich on-campus learning environment. Students who select the rich-distance learning option will participate in formal classroom settings where they can communicate with instructors and other students (both in person and online).
Rich-distance learning is a fantastic option for students who want to experience the “conventional” manner of studying but at a much lower cost.
