For many people, an online business degree program has several benefits over an education from a traditional, brick-and-mortar college. Benefits of an online business degree include:

Flexibility: An online degree program lets students fit their education within hours that are convenient to them, and they can work at their own pace. In many cases, students can also earn credits for work experience and prior education, putting students on the fast track to the degree of their choice.

Personalized Mentoring: Students communicate with their mentor through phone calls, email and Web conferencing for a more personalized experience and one-on-one guidance.

Affordable Pricing: Because online universities have less overhead, a degree costs less.

Students Can Start Right Away: In many cases, there’s no need to wait for classes to start during spring, fall or summer semesters. Instead, classes may begin as frequently as once a month. Once a student makes the decision to get their online business degree, they can start almost immediately.

Wide Range of Degree Programs: Whether students want to advance their education in their current field, or earn a business degree in a different field in order to change careers, online universities offer as many choices as conventional universities—and sometimes more!
