By earning your business degree via online learning you no longer have to miss classes because of corporate travel or quit a degree program because your company relocates you. Portability of your academic degree should not be considered a luxury – it is a necessity in today’s business environment.
The typical time students take to complete a degree is 3 ½ years for the standard MBA, 2 ½ years for the MSTM, 2 ½ years for the MIS, and 2 years for the MSE. However, the amount of time to complete a degree will depend on the semester course loads each student decides he or she can handle, as well as on a student’s talks with his or her adviser regarding a plan of study. For students who want to complete their degrees quickly, talking with an advisor regarding a plan of study is especially important.
The number of hours you take really depends upon what other responsibilities you have and how much coursework you believe you can handle. We strongly urge students considering taking more than nine hours in the fall or spring – or more than six in the summer – to consult with their adviser.
Quality is very important to OSU. The same faculty and instructors who teach in the online learning program teach in OSU’s on-campus programs. OSU’s course delivery is unique in that you receive the live, in-class lecture, captured in a digital format, unlike text-based degree programs. All courses are taught by the Spears School of Business’ high-quality faculty members, who have national reputations in their fields.
