Learning Format

Students can enter Business Management programs any semester — because when you are ready to start on the path to a new career and change your life, there is no reason to wait. 

Classes are offered in a variety of formats: on campus, blended, online asynchronous, and synchronous technology. 

On Campus Icon
On Campus

These are courses that are taught primarily in the classroom or lab with less than 50% of instruction online. On campus courses may include lecture, labs, internships, clinicals, and other in-person instructional modalities.  

Blended Icon
Blended

Blended courses are distance learning courses with the majority of the course content, activities, and interactions occurring online but may require students to come to campus for specific assignments, activities, or events.

Online Asynchronous Icon
Online Asynchronous

These are courses that are taught fully online asynchronously with course content, activities, and interactions occurring entirely online. This delivery method does not require students to be online at a specific date or time, and students may participate in class activities and complete course assignments asynchronously. Online asynchronous courses require proctored events.

Synchronous Technology Icon
Synchronous Technology

OFTC also utilizes synchronous technology to offer courses via distance education means. The course is taught on one campus and then broadcast simultaneously to a classroom on a different campus that is monitored by a class proctor.

Graduate Testimonials

“OFTC’s business management program helped me achieve the goals I’ve attained today, including becoming the General Manager of a local hotel.

My instructors really personalized the experience by catering to my learning-style; they allowed me time to process the concepts and the principles of business, which allowed me to truly grasp the knowledge required for my degree.
