Online MBA Benefits

Flexible Study Times

An MBA requires a large investment in time and energy. Removing the onus of having to attend lectures as specific times as well as travel, can give you more time to study and learn. An online MBA allows you to study at your pace and take time off to focus on other priorities like career opportunities or family commitments.

Affordability

For the many ambitious students concerned about tuition costs, MBAs can offer great value in terms of both base cost and timeline flexibility. It’s possible to find accredited online MBA programs for as little as $5,000 to $10,000 a year, while some on-campus MBAs can cost more than $100,000. At many programs, it’s also possible to adjust how many credits you take per semester, or how long it takes you to complete the program, based on how much you can afford to pay over time. And, of course, continuing to work while you’re in school is an undeniable financial upside.

Access To Innovative Technologies

Increasingly online MBA course delivery is driven by technology. Many schools and MBA providers have developed custom portals that provide access to full course content, assisted learning, webinars, course forums and discussion boards and networking opportunities. The Australian Institute of Business (AIB) has been a leader in developing online learning technology.
