PGBS Admissions process

The programs at the Pregen Business School are delivered on campus* via the hybrid learning model or by completely online instruction. Students order books, review course syllabi and access assignment specifications and schedules online. Throughout the process, work is closely monitored by the course instructor -- who grades and returns written papers, who responds to content-related inquiries, and who provides guidance, supplementary materials, as suitable, and resource acquisition information. It is the instructor, too, who engages the student in active learning (via classroom instructions, email exchanges, peer chats, message boards, co-participatory projects), and tracks student progress through the course. This process is underpinned and supported by the Division of Student Services, where administrative staff maintains contact with students and track rates of progress, thus fortifying the efforts of the instructional corps. All students have access to the E-Global library and to a wide spectrum of online source materials to sustain the learning experience and to allow for in-depth pursuit of focused investigation and analysis. The asynchronous model provides the opportunity to self-pace and affords each the option to adopt a study paradigm consonant with his or her individual style of learning.

All programs offered by Pregen Business School blend academic rigor with ample flexibility, independent learning with plentiful student support, cutting-edge learning strategies with comprehensive curricula, high standards with ultimate recognition of professional attainments. The design in place is one that fosters both scholastic and professional success alike. Excellence is surely the proud and unwavering hallmark of Pregen Business School.
