Complete your entire degree in a 100% online class format, part time, one course at time, in less than two years! It is possible to complete your entire degree online in less than one year as a full time student. The entire MBA and our Certificates are offered online. All of our programs are open to both in-state and out-of-state students. Our online courses are asynchronous, which means that there are weekly deadlines and examination windows, but generally no other set time that you need to log into the course. This means that you can complete your classwork on your weekly schedule – around your work and family commitments. In some cases professors may assign students into teams and teams may need to coordinate their work together and therefore be available at a certain time.
