Online courses: Business Media in Education

Business Media in Education, an initiative of BDFM Publishers, recognises that business school courses are expensive and time consuming – and not always what you need to fill the gap in knowledge in your field.

Our courses are designed by professionals experienced in their fields, as well as university lecturers. They will help you get a grip on your subject at minimum cost and at times that suit you best – any time, online.

You get access to your course site with checklists, case studies, links to useful websites and legislation, electronic toolboxes and calculators relevant to your course, as well as a short subscription to Business Day or Financial Mail. You will have open access to your course for six months.
