Want an online MBA from a well-regarded school? Arizona State University (ASU) offers an MBA degree program designed for working professionals who want to continue working full-time while attending online classes. ASU is a tier one school according to U.S. News & World Report and Forbes considers ASU among America’s best colleges.
The program is designed to be completed in two years and has a 95% on-time graduation rate. At the beginning of the program, you are required to attend a four-day orientation on campus. Though the rest of the program is completely online, ASU believes that earning the degree should also be a collaborative experience. In the orientation, you will build relationships with other students in preparation for the team projects in the curriculum. Also, you will meet the business faculty and support staff. The faculty will present course overviews and review policies such as deadlines, grading and contact methods unique to the virtual education environment. The support staff will help you become familiar with the technology used in the online classroom.
If you want to know the perspective of a current student, ASU has a group of students called Online MBA Ambassadors that can answer your questions. The Ambassadors represent a wide cross-section of individuals in terms of career function, industry, year in the program and geographic representation. You can contact any of them through ASU.
Program requirements include an undergraduate degree with a minimum GPA of 3.0, at least 2 years of work experience, and a GMAT score.
