Making the decision to enroll for the MBA program was certainly a difficult one. I had considered the program several times before in the past, always making excuses not to enroll, such as being too busy with work, or that companies valued experience over education.
As I near the end of my MBA program, I have found myself back on popular job posting websites such as LinkedIn and Monster.com, looking for a new career opportunity.
With an average college semester typically lasting 16 weeks, it can prove intimidating to complete MBA level courses in half that time. We are oftentimes already so busy with our current schedules, it can be a struggle to find time to fit in class work.
With online courses, you will not have the face-to-face contact with your professors and peers, and a majority of your course material will be self-taught through assigned readings and research.
I was actually relieved to learn that OLLU wanted me to complete several modules of the BADM 6600: Fundamentals of Business Administration, to serve as a refresher prior to starting my MBA.
Even though I may have struggled through similar classes in my undergrad, my professional experience has expanded my understanding and capabilities, so the classes make sense.
To better fit my schedule, I decided to complete my MBA program online. I was overwhelmed by the numerous schools to choose from but was eventually able to narrow my decision down to two universities.
