Earning your MBA online comes with a slew of advantages. People want or migrate to an online format for a variety of reasons. Flexibility and accessibility are two of the most appealing arguments.
And, since many people face an uncertain future as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, such reasons may be more enticing than ever. However, there are several factors to consider while considering an online MBA. Ask yourself these ten questions before deciding on a program.
01-Do you think an online degree is a good fit for you?
Self-motivation is essential for online program success. Self-motivation is especially crucial in online MBA programs because many of them use an asynchronous structure in which students aren’t forced to watch lectures or engage in discussions at the same time. Consider whether you like independent studying or need more structure and face-to-face connection with classmates and professors as you assess your learning style.
02-What is the accreditation status of the online program?
It can be difficult to narrow down your selections with the expanding number of online MBA programs. Verify the online program’s accreditation as a starting point to confirm it’s legitimate. The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International), the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), and the International Accreditation Council for Business Education are some of the most well-known accrediting agencies for MBA programs (IACBE). These non-profit organizations assess the teaching, faculty, services, and students of a business program. They acknowledge business programs that achieve their stringent academic standards based on this assessment. If one of these bodies has accredited the online program you’re considering, it’s a good indication of its quality.
