Online Teaching

GO ONLINE & CREATE HIGHLY FLEXIBLE LEARNING

At CBS we are committed to engage students in activating and collaborative learning processes. Online learning activities allow us to do just that. We differentiate between two types of fully online learning: Online Courses, which are courses giving credit to CBS students, and MOOCS, which are open for everyone and does not give official credit. They usually have a duration of 8 weeks.

All learning activities and all content can be accessed without physical presence and in most cases with no fixed time schedule either. Hereby, the online course can offer flexibility for students in terms of when and where to do their weekly coursework.

In return, an online course will provide the students with an equivalent amount of ECTS as on-campus courses. Neither the course activities nor the exam will require students to be present on campus.

Online courses can include:

  • Recorded video lectures
  • Online case materials
  • Spoken PowerPoint presentations
  • Discussion forums
  • Online Q&A sessions
  • Quizzes
  • Online supervision

KAN-CCMVV1017U:
New Frontiers in Branding: From static to dynamic branding approaches

This course confronts student with and prepares them for a complex branding reality in which brands can no longer be “managed” in the conventional sense. In today’s business environment brand management is no longer in the position to unilaterally “manage” brands while perceiving consumers and other brand-interested stakeholders as passive recipients of brand messages. Empowered by new social media, brand-interested stakeholders actively contribute to brands that affect their personal lives. The course reviews conventional static branding approaches and supports students in understanding the recent evolution towards a more dynamic, process-oriented understanding of brands.

BA-BINTV2001U:
Who Owns the Future? The Promise and Perils of the Coming Big Data Revolution

Scarcely a day goes by without reports of revolutionary new technologies, many of which promise to transform whole industries, from finance to health care to translation. This technological development is powered by exponential growth in the availability of Big Data, together with similar growth in the computing power to exploit that data. Many believe that this development is ushering in an era of genuine Artificial Intelligence (AI), with unprecedented improvements in productivity and general living standards. This course critically examines this utopian vision, focusing on two inter-related issues: the technology, and its impact.
