How Does an Online MBA Program Work?

Finding the right online MBA program for you can be a daunting task. With traditional schools joining early adopters like NCU in recognizing the benefits of an online learning model, the options continue to expand. It’s important to understand how each program works and whether or not if fits your unique requirements.

How is an online MBA different than a traditional MBA?

In many traditional MBA programs you will have to wait for the semester to start, and hope the courses you wish to take aren’t filled up. With NCU’s one-to-one learning model you are guaranteed a spot in the course, there is no fear of your preferred course being full and ending up on a waiting list.

Do online MBA programs require GMAT or GRE scores?

At NCU, we offer our online MBA with no GMAT or GRE required. NCU understands that some students struggle with standardized tests and therefore those test scores are not predictive of their graduate school performance.

How do I get started?

To begin the process of seeking admission to NCU’s MBA program, it’s best to contact an enrollment advisor via our chat option, phone number, or request information form. You will need to provide undergraduate transcripts and if all admission criteria are satisfied and you are accepted, all that’s left to do is pick which Monday you want to start.

I can start my MBA program any Monday?

At NCU, once you have been accepted, you can begin the following Monday. Weekly course starts mean you can start pursuing your MBA as quickly as you’re ready without having to wait for traditional semesters.

What other differences does an Online MBA Program have?

We can’t speak for other universities, but NCU’s one-to-one learning model means no group work. Unlike other universities, you won’t have to schedule time with your group who may live in different time zones or be less dedicated to the project than you.

All assignments are submitted conveniently through the student portal weekly which means you can rest easy knowing school fits your schedule, not the other way around. Turn your assignments in on the due date, or turn them in early, you take classes when you choose. There is no need to show up at a class or on a video-conference at a specific time, so your program fits your busy schedule.

How much does an online MBA cost?

With no physical classroom, residency requirement, commute, or other common overhead expenses; you just pay tuition, course material fees, and any university fees that may apply. Visit the tuition page for more information.
