Q:I was transferring my credits to Online MBA Schools. But the moment I applied, the authorities said I can't. Why is it so?
A:Ever since March 2010, many of the Online MBA Schools in the United States have become quite stringent in offering any exemptions whatsoever. Over the last year the course structure and examination method has also quite drastically evolved and has become not quite identical to the campus based education. You may wish to opt for the online variant in your own current school, if they offer it, since that may be much less stringent for you.
Q:If I go for an MBA school online instead of the campus based MBA institute, should I expect any difference in the curriculum?
A:No, the curriculum of campus based MBA programs and online MBA programs is the same. You do not need to worry about any difference in the curriculum. It is only the mode of learning that is different. You will be expected to study all general business subjects such as management and marketing, and will be given the same options for specializations that campus based institutes offer.
Q:Is accreditation an important factor to consider before enrolling in any of the top MBA online schools?
A:Yes, accreditation is one of the most important factors to consider when enrolling in any business school. Institutes that are not accredited are not recognized in the nation. Accreditation basically means that an institute is following all quality standards. So before enrolling in any online program, check the accreditation status.
Q:I am considering an online MBA school instead of the regular one. Can you tell me its benefits?
A:An online MBA school can offer you a lot of convenience and flexibility, compared to the traditional on campus schools. With online programs, it is possible for you to work along with studies.
