Is an Online MBA Program the Same as a Regular MBA?
The requirements for admissions in an on-campus and online MBA program are very similar. The main difference is if a student is applying for an online program, the same amount of material covered in their courses will be condensed to an 8 week accelerated period versus a traditional 16 week semester on-campus. Employers want employees to have a degree from a reputable and accredited school, like Xavier. When Xavier offers an MBA online or in-person, the quality of the degree is the same. Networking is different for online students but is definitely part of each online class via group projects, critique & commentary on submitted work by student peers, and out-of-class assignments that require connecting during the week. In addition as an online student, you have access to student services such as the career center, academic advising, health & wellness programming, and engagement opportunities with speakers.
What Makes an Online MBA Program the Best for You?
The best online MBA program is accredited by the AACSB which stands for the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International. Only 30 percent of business schools in the USA carry this accreditation. It ensures that your selected business program is staffed by the highest-quality faculty who deliver challenging and applied coursework. Employers seek out quality graduates who attend quality business schools. Overall, AACSB accredited schools have students with higher GPAs, diverse backgrounds, and partnerships with employers who recruit the students.
Xavier’s online program benefits students who are interested in an online format, manageable yet intense classes and are working while in school. The flexibility of this rigorous program allows working professionals to earn a degree without interrupting their personal life. Our focus on supporting the student who manages personal life & obligations, full-work, and part-time graduate school makes our nationally ranked online MBA program one that is chosen most often and one that our alumni recommend without hesitation.
