With the increased popularity of online degree programs, more and more business professionals are choosing to enroll in an online MBA program. While offering the same curriculum and expertise of a traditional MBA program, online students also enjoy the flexibility of studying at a time that’s convenient for them. Whether you are looking for a new career or want to advance in your current one, a master’s in business administration may be the degree program that you have been looking for.
There are several explanations as to why many are choosing online MBA options over traditional programs. Here are a few reasons why it’s a great option for you.
Convenience and Flexibility
Convenience is the biggest benefit to earning your degree online. You can complete your course work anywhere and anytime it’s best for you. This makes it easy for you to balance your previous time commitments with work or family, and still complete the assignments to continue progressing through courses.
This flexibility also makes it easier for you to collaborate with instructors and classmates. Gone are the long commutes between campus and home just to work on a project or meet with a professor. Instructors are aware of the time constraints of students and will ensure that they contact you at times that work for you.
Complete Access to Course Information
In traditional campus-based courses, missing a lecture can hinder your progress. With online courses, all lectures and course materials are available for easy viewing in our online classroom. You won’t have to worry about missing crucial instruction. Or, if you are unsure about a concept, it’s easy to go back and review the material whenever you need to.
At Touro University Worldwide, our online classroom system is available for students anywhere and anytime they have an Internet connection. Students have plenty of time and opportunities to access assignments and course materials. Communicating with professors is also easy with either email or other online messaging tools.
According to GetEducated.com, our low cost of $500 per credit hour, and $18,000 for the total program tuition, substantially beats the average total cost of the average MBA program.
The financial benefits don’t end there. As with any traditional program, online programs are committed to helping you through financial aid and even scholarships. As online education has increased in popularity, so has the availability of financial assistance. There are several scholarship funds and special programs available to online students, especially returning students. These funds can have a huge impact on how much you pay for your education. At TUW there are no text books to purchase, all course materials provided free of charge from TUW vast library. This is a great saving of thousands of dollars, as textbook prices are very expansive.
Student Success at TUW’s MBA program

TUW is proud to present a very high retention and graduation rate. MBA retention rate 83.3 %, and Student Graduation Rate for the MBA program 89.7%.
An online MBA may be delivered in a different format but it serves the same purpose as a traditional program—to further your business career. Online MBA programs are able to give you the expertise and skills you need to move into managerial roles. With that, your salary opportunities with an MBA are lucrative, and are available in a variety of industries.
According to the Graduate Management Admission Council, nine out of every 10 new MBA grads are employed nationwide. This nearly unrivaled employment rate shows that earning this degree bodes very well for your professional career. And at TUW, we will help you gain experience needed to succeed in today’s business world.
Thanks to the online nature of the degree, you can continue to build employment experience. Traditional MBA programs often force you to either reduce work hours or stop working altogether. With an online degree, you can keep working and even potentially apply your new knowledge directly to the workplace.
