Updates regarding coronavirus COVID-19

In Fall 2020, ACT is planning to deliver its normal academic offerings with very little deviation. We are preparing for an on-campus delivery, but at the same time, since the virus crisis is not over, we are also developing all the necessary protocols and mechanisms that will ensure that campus presence is safe. Recognizing that some students may not be able to physically come to campus, we are also developing the necessary infrastructure that can accommodate them with real-time electronically mediated instruction.

ACT's business curriculum is typical of the US university approach to a well-rounded comprehensive education, not mere functional training. It produces thinking leaders that can react to a dynamic environment. The program challenges students to become successful managers and leaders in their respective countries and internationally.
