The Online Learning Methodology

Adhering to the highest standards of teaching methodology provided by EFMD, the Master Online in International Management is taught through interactive lectures, case study analyses, exercises, discussions, teamwork exercises, video conferences, business analysis and sessions of student presentations. Students are encouraged to read and engage in discussions and debates. The teaching methodology is based on learning by doing, with lecturers implementing a student-centered approach, getting students involved and providing activities that allow students to apply the knowledge acquired. The Online Methodology consists of live, interactive lectures, led and facilitated by professors. The programs are self-paced, as students take pre-master courses at their own speed and using self-assessment exercises. This practical, applicable methodology consists of synchronous and asynchronous activities.

online methodology. Text and the image has a purpose: to explain the methodology


Students are free to learn at their own pace and define personal learning paths based on their individual needs and interests, as well as the content provided, taking into account the deadlines for learning, evaluation and assessments. The self-paced methodology is applied on the pre-master courses, which are based on pre-recorded interactive sessions led by the lecturer professor, with a PPT presentation, exercises and self-assessment for each course. Students study the material at their own pace and do a self-assessment exercise to track their progress.


The online learning methodology is fully professor-led and facilitated live in real time. Every lecture is created and delivered by a lecturer using our online platform Blackboard. The communication tools used by the lecturers include discussion forums, chats, emails, breakout sessions, whiteboards, and audio and video sharing to communicate and work together. As a final step, sessions usually include an exercise or assessment to measure the learning.


The online methodology in every class is live and interactive. Teaching methods and techniques are used creatively to develop an engaging and motivating learning experience. There is frequent interaction with the student interaction to foster and maintain engagement and promote learning.


The online learning methodology is practical, with all the class activities and online learning methods, e-content and materials used also being put into practice in the different assessments (self-assessments, tests and practical assignments), capstone project and class activities.


The online methodology is structured as a combination of synchronous or real-time activities (such as online platform chats, breakout rooms/sessions, virtual pooling, virtual whiteboard, etc.) and asynchronous or on-demand activities, which students can do whenever suits them best in terms of their preferences and other commitments (such as emails, discussion forum platforms, online platform meetings, recorded lectures via links, virtual coffee and conversation sessions, etc.).

Business Practice 

Practice Lab | In partnership with Nokia HMD

hmd logo and the text has a specific function

Rome Business School Practice Lab is the place where theoretical concepts are put in practice and participants learn through experience. The Lab is run by managers from leading national or international companies in the sector/industry, who will examine different specialist knowledge, work on exercises and network, while sharing their experience and expertise with the students. The Lab for the Master Online in International Management is entirely run by the School’s Partner Companies and the activities included are specific for each Master program and goal. 

The Practice Lab consists of 3 main phases: 

Phase 1 | Manager Meet-Ups 

Students meet two managers from the Partner Company, from different areas or divisions, such as finance and marketing, who share their experience of their day-to-day work and business, with a specific and relevant focus for the Master. 

Phase 2 | Hands-on Class 

Students gain first-hand insight from the direct experience of company managers, enhancing the knowledge and skillset acquired on the Master. They will analyze, assess, create and develop, a certain plan or strategy given by the company in relation to what they have studied in class and the company’s business operations. 

Phase 3 | Get on Task 

The company managers present two in-class business scenarios (business cases), so that, by implementing the concepts learned, the students find solutions and create strategies. At the end of the class, they orally present the final results and ideas. 

Company Shadowing | Full Time Exclusive

A process in which a student observes a professional for a short period of time, such as a day or few hours, to get a better understanding of the job position and insight into the company department/division. 

Students will get a first-hand insight into the reality of business life, rather than a theoretical version of a specific job position or working environment. For a few hours, they will observe the day-to-day tasks of a professional and learn from a person who has experience in the field. They will also be given a tour of the workplace and take part in a Q&A session at the end of the day. Only high-performing students will get the chance to take part in Company Shadowing. 

Captstone Project:

At the end of your educational experience, you will have the chance to prove your abilities by tackling a real business challenge. Use your talent to identify opportunities and create a truly innovative strategy. 

Tackle a real company challenge. You can choose to be part of a small team and design an innovative business plan or define a revolutionary internationalization strategy in line with the trends and challenges of the today’s global industry.
