What is a Hybrid Program?

A hybrid program is one that mixes face-to-face learning with online learning. The dual-degree from ABS Paris and Franklin University is 2/3 online and 1/3 in the classroom, on the Paris campus of The American Business School of Paris. By using the latest technology mixed with the benefits of in-classroom learning, students benefit from the most efficient use of their time and the school and faculty resources to earn their degree.
