Bachelor’s Program in Business Administration – FLEX

FLEX is a study format combining online learning with classroom sessions.

The ZHAW School of Management and Law has a new study format that offers maximum flexibility: FLEX combines online lessons with classroom sessions. You acquire knowledge to a large extent online - whenever and wherever it suits you. Additionally, you also attend regular classes in a compact format on our campus in Winterthur.

FLEX is a complete and fully recognized course of study: Concerning the degree you earn as well as its instructors, learning content, and exams, it is identical to a part-time program. Moreover, you do not have to do it alone. Our instructors will support you at every step of your online studies: In live chats, forums and by e-mail, they will stay in touch with you and your fellow students. The workload of the FLEX program corresponds to that of a part-time program, taking eight semesters to complete.
