MBA Success

Online college has been a controversial topic ever since its introduction, but with the recent technological advancements in the last decade online education has skyrocketed. Whether you are stuck in a rut at your job and need something different, aiming for that promotion at work, or just need a salary increase, an online degree can help you with that by offering online MBA education.

The University of Ohio has created an infographic showing categorized statistics on how online education has changed the options we have for higher education today.

Below are several of the key topics that are covered:

  • Classroom of the future
    • Online enrollment statistics
    • Current enrollment
    • Online education vs. face-to-face learning
  • The online MBA
    • Ratio of students studying business degrees
    • Average duration for part time students
    • Annual earnings for new MBA holders
    • Why choose an online MBA program

Many students work full-time jobs, or have children at home that take a great amount of time, so face-to-face learning on campus can seem impossible. Online education takes the trip back and forth to campus, time away from their children, and long class schedules that conflict with work out of the equation, and provides a less stressful, more diverse, and easy to access way to attain higher education for a better future.
