Why Online for an MBA?

As a working professional, you have goals that you want to achieve to ensure advancement and promotion, such as increased responsibility, landing a new job or switching careers. To shore up the possibility of achieving these goals, you can enroll in an online MBA program.

UT Tyler provides an online MBA for working professionals that is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), offering you the highest quality faculty and a first-class curriculum. Because all of the courses are online, you can study from any location, whenever it is convenient, such as during a break at work or while exercising.

Consider These Questions

An MBA for working professionals is an investment of time, energy and money that reaps rich rewards. To ensure an online MBA program is the right step, ask yourself the following questions from AACSB’s BestBizSchools webpage:

  • Will your current employer support your decision to go back to school?
  • What are you truly passionate about?
  • Are you ready for the time (and financial) commitment that earning an MBA requires?
  • What are the top three things you want to get out of a MBA program?

Connect With an Online MBA Program

An online MBA program is good for working professionals, especially when they have support from their families and their employers, so it is a good idea to touch base with them before launching your own studies. By going back to school online, you can access your lectures, homework assignments and other information without having to physically attend class, which is very convenient. This also means that, as a working professional, you do not have to choose between work and school. You can have both.

Create New Opportunities

MBA programs position their graduates for career advancement. The degree expands their ability to make better decisions, which increases their chances of becoming even more successful. There are other reasons to pursue the MBA for working professionals, according to Howard E. Horton, president of the New England College of Business and Finance. He says adults who return to school make more money and enjoy sustained employment.

Employers prefer a well-educated workforce, so check with your company or organization to see if they can help you earn your MBA.
