Generally, those enrolling in an MBA program will already have a bachelor degree in a business related field. It helps to be employed in the career field you intend to work in once you have the MBA as you will have more opportunities to apply your new knowledge to a current, real life situation. You will also have a better idea regarding the particular focus you want for your MBA program as most of these programs are customized at least to some extent. That is, if you know what area of business you want to work in—say, accounting, security, information technology, advertising, etc.—you will be better informed in your efforts at selecting the correct university and then will be better able to work with an advisor in determining exactly which courses you need to complete the degree that fits your needs.
Use our convenient website to contact several schools that seem of interest to you. It's a good idea to contact more than one, not only so that you have comparisons for yourself, but also because schools compete for the best students. If you have a good resume, a good work history, and a good transcript for your undergraduate work—and let it be known that you are considering several universities—you may receive offers and opportunities for scholarships and in-house grants that you might not have even known about if you put the school in the driver's seat. In any case, don't allow yourself to sound desperate. Numerous fine institutions offer the MBA degree, and many of them require no campus attendance at all, so you should not be hard-pressed to find a school that will work with you.
Be aware that online study, especially on the graduate level, requires an inordinate amount of discipline and commitment on your part. While it is true that you can usually schedule your class and study time to fit with your work and family life, it is also true that you must schedule the time. In other words, you will not be successful if you study diligently one week and then skip the next two or three, or if you put off major projects, just hoping to catch up before the deadline. Some colleges will allow you to take additional time for courses, but if you repeatedly drag out the usual time for completing a course, they will soon come to the conclusion that you weren't all that serious about earning the degree.
Finally, don't forget to compare prices of online study among institutions. Online study can be less expensive than traveling to a campus class, but since the professors are expected to be more flexible and available at the hours you need, the cost is sometimes higher than the cost of sitting in a classroom. However, with some research and awareness on your part, earning your MBA through online study can be a very rewarding experience.
