Self-Driven Learning, the new modality to study an online master's degree at La Salle-URL

The Master in Supply Chain Management and Technology is the first to incorporate this modality

​La Salle Campus Barcelona-URL launches a new online modality, Self-Driven Learning, which will allow master's and postgraduate students to learn individually and at their own pace through asynchronous sessions, being able to create their own educative itinerary and organizing the academic year based on their personal needs. The online Master in Supply Chain Management and Technology —one of the best in Spain according to the El Mundo ranking and in the TOP 100 in the world according to the Eduniversal Ranking— is the first to incorporate this new online modality.

The Self-Driven Learning modality arrives to respond to the needs of many professionals who want to continue their education in a flexible way and is based on several aspects:

  • Individual and personalized learning process: Each student creates their own schedules, which they can adjust according to their circumstances. With the exception of some specific follow-up sessions with teachers and tutors, the entire training process and activities are carried out asynchronously.
  • Accompaniment throughout the program: A personal tutor accompanies each of the students at all times, resolving doubts, helping and advising. The methodology is based on challenges.
  • Creation of their own itinerary: The Self-Driven Learning modality allows students to make their learning process more flexible and to complete the program for up to two years.
  • Education in an innovative environment, with active professionals of recognized prestige: The teachers are specialists and experts in their area. The Virtual Campus allows access to all the services offered by La Salle-URL. In addition, students will be able to attend ten transverse elective synchronous annual sessions.

More than 20 years of experience teaching online masters and postgraduate degrees

The La Salle-URL online programs have been consolidated over more than 20 years, perfecting a unique and pioneering methodology, which guarantees the highest quality of education based on learning by challenge. Based on this experience, the Guided Learning modality of online master's and postgraduate courses goes one step further with a synchronous, active and innovative methodology based on situational and self-directed learning. The online Campus is renewed and continues to be accessible from anywhere in the world and at any time.

As in the rest of the programs at La Salle-URL, the students of the online master's and postgraduate courses have continuous tutoring to achieve their objectives. La Salle's online Campus is a reflection of the face-to-face: personalization, accompaniment, constant interaction and academic excellence.
