Monarch Business School Switzerland allows candidates to follow their program under three separate study modes:

  1. Full-time Study Mode
  2. Part-time Study Mode
  3. Independent Study Mode
Full-Time Study Mode (+15 Hours Per Week)

Full-Time Study Mode is for individuals who wish to devote a substantial portion of their time towards their study program. Students intent on following the full-time study mode are prepared to allocate a minimum of 15 to 30 hours of uninterrupted study time per week in pursuit of their studies. Otherwise said, the candidate should allocate 2 to 3 days per week of full-time work towards their studies. At Monarch, full-time does not signify campus study as the programs are by distance. Rather, full-time signifies a full-time equivalent number of hours. Full-time candidates may graduate anytime between 36 and 60 months after registration. This is a supervised program mode.

Part-Time Study Mode (10 Hours Per Week)

Part-Time Study Mode is for individuals who wish to complete their program study while at the same time remaining in the workforce or spending a significant amount of time on other endeavors. Students following the part-time study mode should allocate a minimum of 10 to 20 hours of uninterrupted study time per week in pursuit of their studies. Otherwise said, candidates should allocate 1 to 2 days per week of uninterrupted study time. Part-time candidates may graduate anytime between 48 and 96 months after registration. This is a supervised program mode.

Independent Study Mode (Researchers-Only)

The Independent Study Mode is designed for proven researchers who are able to follow an unsupervised program of study. Candidates accepted into this program of study are able to demonstrate their research ability by evidence of research published in peer reviewed articles and through previous dissertation work at the Master’s level. Candidates must hold an active research or faculty position at University, research institute or equivalent.
