4 Benefits of Earning Your Business Degree Online - Finnegan Pierson - Blog

4 Benefits of Earning Your Business Degree Online




Getting a business degree is a big deal, and it’s important to choose the right institution that offers a program that fits your needs. Those needs can include taking classes around a full-time job or trying to juggle parenting while making crucial and beneficial investments in your future. Your investment in education is an investment in your skillset and your success, but what do you do if there’s not a college or university in your area offering the degree in business you need?


Today’s students are fortunate compared to students of yesterday. They have options, and those options include earning a degree from the convenience of their home, no matter where they live. Data shows 30% of students are taking courses online, a trend that is gaining momentum each year. There are reasons online business degrees are increasingly a popular option as well.


Flexible Scheduling

If you are a parent or a full-time member of the job force, or both, finding a class that fits your schedule can be daunting. When you get home from work, you want to kick off your shoes and relax for a while and maybe even enjoy a warm dinner. You don’t want to jump back into the car to go to an evening class. And as a parent, hiring a sitter two or three nights a week so you can go to class can get expensive. This is where earning a business degree online helps. You have the ability to learn at your convenience, whether that’s later at night when the kids go to bed or on your lunch break at work. You can even learn in your pajamas!


Keeping Pace With Technology

In top-ranked programs such as the USC online MBA, students not only learn flexibility and time-management skills, but they also learn and put into practice the latest technological trends in the business world. Today many businesses rely on internet access to communicate, hold meetings and share data and documents. How technology allows business to do these things is constantly evolving and universities have the ability to keep up with the latest software and trends. That is a skill that your potential future employer will value.


Complete School Work From Your Phone

Reporting from students shows that 83% of the colleges and universities they attend online have apps compatible with smartphones. Students under the age of 45 are more likely to make use of these apps and submit assignments from their phones. For people who are constantly on the go, this convenience is unparalleled by any other higher education format being offered. For busy students commuting by train or subway in larger cities, this creates an opportune time to stay ahead in what is a normally busy life.


Networking With Other Students

Online programs in business administration draw students from all over the United States and the world. The virtual classroom has given students access to opportunities they may not have otherwise had in their own communities, and this includes the opportunity for networking.


The virtual environment allows students to interact and get to know one another, perhaps even more intimately than a traditional classroom. As a result, students will have contacts in the business world post-graduation. By networking with those students during the job search phase, and even during career advancements, more doors will open for them leading to greater opportunities.


The availability of online education has given students from all walks of life opportunities that may not have otherwise been available in the past. Earning a degree that allows study from any location in the world, even on a train, allows students to retain their connections at home while expanding their connections across the globe. An online business degree, in particular, also incorporates important skills in the online world that prepares students for the evolving technological advancements of the corporate world. For these reasons, online degrees are a good choice for many students.
