The number of higher-education programmes (HF and FH) in Switzerland offering preparation for the Cambridge Business English Certificates has grown significantly. The BEC certificates are an integral part of these programmes. Cambridge English and Speexx now offer digital learning solutions fit for higher education.
Usually, students prepare for a HF or FH (Bachelor’s) degree over the course of three years. They are trained in their respective fields which could be “Business Administration”, “Marketing”, “Finance”, “Leadership” and so on.
Communication and foreign languages, mostly English, are undisputed disciplines which are needed in all areas of business and consequently build an important part of the mentioned programmes. However, preparing for a Cambridge certificate during the programme is only one requirement of many which the students have to fulfil. Hence, flexibility is ultimately key and can be offered and reached by modern digital learning platforms.
Flexibility essentially means two things. Frist, the learner can decide on his or her own study pace. Second, classroom learning and studying segments can be planned and scheduled on demand. Such learning platforms allow students to effectively integrate and align their Cambridge BEC preparation most effectively to all the other subjects.
Cambridge Assessment English, in partnership with Speexx, have developed full online BEC courses which help higher-education institutions in progressing the digital transformation process by offering their students learning opportunities with the highest level of flexibility aiming at success.
