Our Classroom Experience 

To fully support our students, the University of Redlands School of Business & Society now offers courses in four learning format options: on-ground, online (asynchronous), online live (synchronous), and a combination of both on-ground and online live (synchronous).


Our courses are taught at multiple physical locations, including: 

  • Eight conveniently located campuses across California
  • Professional cohorts at Caltech campus in Pasadena (open to the public) and employer partner cohorts at Abbott Vascular, Inc., United Technologies Corporation at Chula Vista and Riverside, and Firefighters First Credit Union
  • Community college cohorts at Fullerton College, Mesa College, and Palomar College

Students who prefer to take traditional on-ground courses have the opportunity to do so and will be able to network with faculty and peers in person. All students will have access to their designated campus location to utilize resources and technology available to them on-ground. Course availability at each campus and at on-site locations is based on enrollment demand each term and partner discretion.


Online (asynchronous)

Online students can do their coursework at their own pace and schedule. These programs are well-suited for busy professionals who want to earn their degree but find the traditional evening and/or Saturday on-ground courses not ideal for their schedules and prefer the flexibility of taking courses on demand. These programs also provide students with the flexibility to balance their many priorities and save on commuting time. Online courses are currently only offered for our MBA program, with more programs to be added in the future.


Online Live (synchronous)

Our online live courses are taught by faculty live in real time so that students can log in and attend class remotely from anywhere, interacting in real time with on-ground faculty and online peers. This learning format allows students to engage in discussions, ask questions, and/or speak directly to faculty and peers during class time. This option is well-suited for professionals who cannot attend classes on-ground but want to have the opportunity to interact with faculty and peers in real time without sacrificing quality. This type of program also allows remote students to have a sense of community and to build relationships with peers and faculty.
