Frequently Asked Questions

If you're considering an online MBA program, you likely have questions. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we hear.

  • Is campus study better or more valued than online? Hiring managers are typically more concerned about the reputation of the school than the way an MBA degree is earned.4 Accredited schools like the University of Kansas School of Business uphold a strong reputation among online MBA programs.
  • What is an online MBA course like? Online MBA programs provide the same educational content that is taught in a classroom setting, but include additional benefits like always-on access to course work, quick responses from instructors, classmate discussion groups, instant progress tracking and much more. Lessons and test-taking are more flexible than traditional classroom study, allowing students to work on a schedule conducive to their professional and personal lives.
  • How will an online MBA benefit my career? Obtaining an MBA online can result in numerous professional opportunities. Many graduates find they can apply for higher positions than they could previously, are able to more confidently ask for a pay raise or more responsibility at their current jobs, or are able to obtain more desirable positions at the companies they want to work for. Often, the connections made in an online MBA classroom setting, including relationships with both professors and other students, result in job referrals, mentorships and more. For students who feel stagnant in their current roles, who are unsure about how to advance more rapidly, or who want to change career paths, online MBA programs can help them achieve their goals.
