Completing an Online Course
Each six-week core course within the Online program consists of five modules that you access with your Web browser. You spend the first five weeks completing one module each week. Then, during the sixth week of each of each course, you complete an online final examination or project.
Completing a weekly module means more than just studying and interacting with online course content. You also read assigned textbook and supplemental readings, participate in required online interactive exercises and complete an online quiz. Although module assignments are due each week, you can work on them wherever and whenever you choose.
Learn with your peers. The Online program realizes the effectiveness of students learning together. Students in each cohort not only progress through the core courses of the program together, they also begin and end each of the MBA courses in unison. For each course, a set of weekly interactive exercises, completed either individually or in teams, facilitate shared learning in our comprehensive online MBA classes. Elective courses are taken with students from other cohorts.
Students who successfully complete the Online program will find themselves transformed. Irrespective of background, students will become more informed leaders equipped with the knowledge to make effective decisions in the complex, dynamic business environment of the 21st century. Furthermore, the experience you gain by learning in geographically distributed teams will prepare you for today's physically dispersed business organizations and partner networks.
