Taking Online MBA Classes

An MBA degree is a little easier to achieve with the flexibility of online classes.
Getting a graduate degree is demanding — especially with work, family, and everything else in your life. Online classes are similar to traditional college courses in many ways. You still have a professor, textbooks, classmates, assignments, quizzes, and tests but it's all online!

How Classes Work

Classes are held during a semester timeframe with weekly deadlines for assignments. Your presence will be apparent only if you add to discussions and do the assignments. It is crucial that you keep up-to-date by reading all lecture materials and posted comments before participating in the discussions.

You will receive updates from your instructor, find your syllabus, calendar, instructor written commentaries and video files, have discussions, deposit and retrieve assignments, and track your progress.
