In order to prevent the threat of coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in the territory of Azerbaijan, the educational process has been suspended in all educational institutions. Nevertheless, in order to provide students with the opportunity to get study programs, a number of activities related to the organization of the educational process at Baku Business University are carried out remotely - "online" at a high level.
