MSEM Course Delivery Format

Online and More
Earn Your Degree 100% Online

Our course delivery model offers what we believe to be the ultimate in flexibility by providing the opportunity to blend online and in-class instruction. The MSEM program can be completed entirely online. However, if you prefer a traditional classroom setting, you will have the option to attend in-class sessions offered during the evening. Courses typically meet one or two nights per week. With our lecture capture software, you will be able to watch the lecture online at the time of your choosing. You can refer back to the lecture as needed and download the audio and video onto your phone or tablet. Our model is designed to enhance the learning process and facilitate your interaction with instructors and classmates. Through our course delivery software you will be able to post questions and assignments, review complex mathematical equations that were discussed in class, work on team projects, maintain a record of your correspondence with instructors and classmates, and more.
