A popular masters degree in business is now available for the non-traditional student
Working professionals looking to advance their careers and future earning potential now have the opportunity to study online for an MBA. These working professionals are often termed “non-traditional” students in academia due to the fact that their path towards an MBA degree lies outside of the customary brick and mortar education model.
In the past, colleges offered non-traditional students the opportunity to take night classes on campus in order to earn college credits towards a degree. Students were faced with long commutes and long hours in a classroom after already working a full day. In today’s increasingly digital age, more colleges are offering non-traditional students the opportunity to go online to earn their MBA and other advanced degrees, understanding that adult learners’ needs are completely different than those of students 18 to 24 years old.
Why learn online for an MBA?
Convenience & Flexibility: It is nearly impossible to hold your typical 9 to 5 job when you are enrolled as a full-time student in an advanced degree program as the MBA, because classes and lectures are offered at various times throughout the day. Earning your MBA in the old fashion, from a traditional brick and mortar college is quite difficult if not impossible, as it often becomes a student’s full-time job.
Online degree programs provide students with the convenience of taking classes when their schedule allows and as few courses as they can manage properly. Online students can also choose where to log in and access their courses, whether at home, work, the local coffee shop or library.
Professional and Personal Value: Employers understand the value of employing staff with advanced degrees – specifically an MBA. Often employers will cover the cost of tuition if you express interest in earning your MBA. The skill set obtained from course work will serve to increase the quality of your work as well as productivity. It will also set you up for future promotions and career advancements.
On a personal level, earning an advanced degree like the MBA can increase your self-confidence, and allow you to be a role model for your family and friends.
It is a competitive job market out there, and employees with an MBA are in high-demand in the current business environment. Saving time on commute and choosing to study online for an MBA will give you more flexibility in managing your daily activities and position you for career growth and increased earnings in the future.
