Distance Learning

Purpose

Multitech Business School (MBS)
Distance education is quite a new programme meant to address the challenges faced by people who would wish to further their education but are incapacitated by busy schedules and distance.
To achieve this MBS developed an E-learning system, where students interact with instructors through lecture presentations, and administration of tests and/or course works.
The E-learning system enables learners not only to have live lectures but also receive recordings of those lectures.
Students can also have access to the Powerpoint presentations and other word references.
Exams are still administered centrally at the institute until such a time when E-learning controls will be enhanced.
With this approach and flexibility, it is our hope that challenges already mentioned above can be addressed.

Governance and Curriculum

MBS Distance Learning and traditional education curricular are one and same and are accredited by the National Council of Higher Education (NCHE).
Both undergraduate and graduate courses are subject to criteria established by the MBS Academic Board; approved by the MBS Governing Council and accredited by the NCHE. MBS Academic Board ensures that the following criteria are met before a program can be offered on
