What to expect when getting a 100% online MBA.
Are you thinking about getting your MBA? Congratulations, your future is already thanking you. According to U.S. News & World Report, getting your MBA teaches you transferable skills, increases your job security, helps you specialize in a specific industry, and creates networking opportunities. Here are five things you can expect after you enroll in an online MBA program.
1. The key word is “online”
We’re not kidding when we say, “online.” Be prepared to spend a lot of time on your computer. Your classes, writing assignments and resources are all online. Even some of your reading (Yes, online textbooks are a thing) will be online. Congratulations, your computer just became your most valuable asset in graduate school.
2. Work-life balance is possible
Speaking of “completely online,” you can go at your own pace - making the all too elusive work-life balance possible. Online programs are flexible. You can listen to lectures, turn in class assignments, and connect with your professor when it’s convenient for you. There’s no, “Sorry I can’t make it to dinner, I have class tonight.” Now, it’s easier to balance getting your MBA with work, family and friends.
3. Get your degree at your own pace
Are you ready to fast track your MBA? There are programs, like ours, that let you finish your degree in as little as 12 months. But, that doesn’t mean that’s how you have to do it. We have degree plans that show you how to finish your degree in 12, 15 and 18 months. Get your MBA on your own time.
4. You’re still interacting with other students
Online courses mean you’re not physically rubbing elbows with your classmates and professors. Thanks to learning management systems like Blackboard and Canvas, message boards and email, you’re still interacting with your classmates on a weekly, if not daily, basis. It’s all about virtual collaboration. Exchange ideas, questions and assignments all from your couch.
5. Brainstorm with other professionals
There are no geographical limits to an online program. A 100% online MBA allows a diverse group of professionals to share insights from different fields. With people from different industries in one program, you have all types of networking opportunities from your class.
