Building the new normal
For this new academic year 2020-2021, TBS in Barcelona is actively adapting its educational method to the specifications of the new and changing reality, ensuring that all program goals and learning outcomes are achieved as usual. So much so that the TBS campus will open its doors and its pedagogical activity will take place from the first day.
One of the pillars of the TBS method is the direct interaction between students and professors, as well as the experience-based model; two concepts that the school considers essential for the development of skills of its students. However, and given the circumstances caused by the global pandemic, TBS will modify its educational strategy to combine face-to-face classes with online learning, always maintaining the excellence and quality of its programs.
In the case of students who come to campus, the hygiene and social distancing measures stipulated by the Government will be applied. The experience on campus will, therefore, depend on the regulations laid down in September and we will keep you updated at all times of the rules taken from the school.
Of course, we fully understand that many of you could face difficulties in reaching Spain, and we are going to adapt to those cases. By all means, you will be able to follow all classes online until your arrival. TBS Faculty is working very hard to face all this contingency and we are preparing to welcome you in the best possible way.
Measures to take into account
Ahead of the beginning of the next academic year, TBS Business School has already established specific regulations focused on maintaining hygiene and social distancing measures that ensure the safety of the TBS community. Of course, it is important to note that the rules may vary until the beginning of the course as stipulated by the competent authorities of the country.
- Protective screens will be installed for the staff who maintain direct contact with the students,.
