But perhaps greatest advantage of earning a degree online is fact that classes are open 24 hours a day, so even busiest person can make time to learn.
“My biggest regret about my participation in Regis University Online MBA program is that I did not enroll sooner,” says Chuck Jaape of Florida. “Why did I wait? I was too busy to go to school. Did my load suddenly lighten, allowing time for studies? Absolutely not! It simply occurred to me that I would always be ‘too busy,’ so I jumped in. I work 55 hours a week, have two small children and a wife who works. I found program to be manageable because I could go to class anytime, day or night. I found program to have more depth, because my fellow learners were all as committed as I was.”
Most online programs typically offer MBA degrees in two years. At Regis University, students can take 12 course program one class at a time and still finish in standard 24 months. Or driven student may look for an accelerated program, like Regis’ MBA Fast Track — taking their first four courses one at a time, then doubling up on their classes to earn degree in only 16 months.
Online students should expect to receive just as much support as their on-campus counterparts, if not more. At Regis University, they have a full virtual-campus – including multi-media courses featuring streaming video, access to Regis University’s Dayton Memorial Library, and a dedicated academic advisor. And if any technical problems should arise, Regis University’s partner, University Alliance, is on hand to offer technical support. And if that weren’t enough, after graduation students can join alumni association and make networking connections that could help them find their next job. Keep in mind that all universities do not offer all these benefits – so make sure you ask plenty of questions.
MBA holders make more money and move up career ladder faster. And programs like Regis University’s online MBA have taken away all obstacles to earning that advanced degree. So there are no more excuses – you can learn at your own pace; on your own time. And in case of Regis University, you have all resources of a traditional campus to back you up. There’s nothing stopping you now.
