Self-discipline is key to succeeding in the world of online education…you are your own worst enemy… In becoming a business management major, there is zero room for NOT being able to manage YOURSELF!

Online vs. On-Campus

Probably one of the most asked questions is whether or not my online degree is as effective as being on campus…and the answer is yes! Fitting your education with your lifestyle is priceless; whether you are a stay-at-home mom or working your way through school, the online option gives everybody an opportunity to advance themselves. Even students with disabilities now have an option that fits their needs.

Some students, though, thrive in a classroom environment and learn more effectively via direct contact with their professors.

The entire college “experience” is a draw for many, from attending student activities to the social aspect of it all, but the options are vast and open to your specific needs. Of course, if you live on campus, it only makes sense to attend classes on campus.

Online versions of classes generally include an assigned online adviser to help guide you and answer your questions. Live classes may also be attended at some universities via a high-speed Internet connection, and participation in in-class courses is also an option. Not to mention, you may live in Virginia and take classes in Alabama or even in other countries!

Most of the time, there is no need to travel to testing locations via the online versions, and enrollment times are scattered throughout the year to accommodate your needs.

Final Thoughts

Regarding a business management degree, the only real advantage to the traditional option is the ability to interact with other students in face-to-face debates and job-preparing managerial situations. Online learning provides convenience and flexibility for busy students.
