Most applicants look at online study programs skeptically. Especially the lack of personal contact between students, teachers and the university is a critical factor.
The School of International Business and Entrepreneurship (SIBE) highly values the exchange between these parties and thus developed the curriculum design „interactive online@SIBE“. An important part of this concept is the support service of the Academic Success Counselor (ASC). Every student in the online programs at SIBE is assigned to an individual ASC, who represent their „go-to“-person for all study related administrative and operative questions.
Nicola Westermann and Lora Horst talk about their role within the study programs and their daily business as Academic Success Counselors at SIBE.
