BGSU offers you the unique option of following a cohort-based model for the core FIAD classes. Cohort learning gives online students a chance to network with peers, exchange ideas, and support each other’s progress. You can begin and complete with a team of your peers, but the program is flexible enough to allow you to take classes at a pace that works for you.

The platform for all online classes is Canvas™. All FIAD classes are designed using the Quality Matters™ matrix to ensure that your valuable time is spent on learning, not searching for information within each course shell.
