Distinguishing characteristics of online program (as submitted by school)

Due to the nature of its student population, CityU has developed a set of curricula that is highly linked to real-world application. Students will be challenged to learn theory and demonstrate how it can be put to use on the job. Courses are designed to be outcomes-focused meaning that the real mark of success is the measure of what students can demonstrate upon completion as opposed to only what they can recall. Courses are taught by practitioners who teach what they do for a living.
