Blended Learning

To meet the demands of students who study alongside their work, courses at Danube Business School are offered as blended learning courses. Blended Learning combines self-study with e-learning and on campus courses according to the training objectives of each degree course.

In e-learning courses, students independently discover or refresh different topics in Business Administration. Special attention is given to the learning speed and the flexibility of each individual student.

On Campus courses: According to findings from learning research, the best way of finding new solutions for complex problems and new answers to far-reaching questions is through
on campus social interaction in plenary sessions or small groups and through exchanges with competent colleagues and lecturers with in-depth subject and/or sector specific expertise.
