Why an Online MBA Is a Wise Investment
A quality online MBA program usually is a good investment into your career that will pay dividends for years. One of the best aspects of an online program is that you can usually pursue your graduate business education while you continue to work.
Years ago, the only options for potential MBA students usually were to go to night school or to stop working and attend school full time. Today’s online MBA programs allow you to attend school part or full time, and usually on your own schedule.
Another major plus for online MBA programs is that distance learning gives you the opportunity to select from many university programs. No longer must you select an MBA program that is within driving distance of your home. You can select an online MBA program in another city, state or even country!
Online MBAs Growing in Popularity
When online MBAs first were introduced more than a decade ago, there may have been somewhat of a ‘stigma’ associated with some of these degrees. There were questions about whether or not online graduate degrees were the equals of their campus-based counterparts.
Today, most quality online MBA programs have gained a great deal of recognition and credibility, with many of these programs fully accredited by the US Department of Education and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), one of the most respected accreditation agencies for business schools. That organization has accredited 727 business schools in 48 countries to date.
If you ever have any question about the quality of your online MBA program, check to see if it is accredited by the Department of Education and/or the AACSB. If so, you know that the program has had to meet high quality standards, and your degree will be accepted by potential employers.
In many programs, there really is no difference today between earning a traditional MBA or online MBA at the end of the two or three year program. The programs usually are virtually identical in content; the only difference is in the method of delivery of the instruction.
