Why We Focus on Online Education

We devote our resources to data-driven analysis of online MBA degrees and programs. We believe in the value of MBA degrees because of their potential high return-on-investment for students.

MBA degrees help recent college graduates, newer professionals, and experienced executives obtain promotions, qualify for salary increases, and prepare for career transitions or ventures.

According to Payscale, MBA-holders make an average of $20,000 more annually than bachelor’s degree-holders in the same field.

We believe in the demonstrated quality of online MBA degrees, which have similar academic rigor and student success outcomes to their on-campus equivalents.

We focus on online MBAs because the flexibility of distance learning makes educational advancement and economic mobility accessible to more students.

Online students can compare curricula, requirements, timelines, and prices to identify the best program fit without being restricted by location or commute time.

Online programs make continuing education and career advancement available to students with mobility or transportation issues, caretaking obligations, and daytime jobs.
