Best practices for online business degree programs
MetadataShow full item record
Online education has changed the way education is delivered. Higher education has been the leader of providing online education. Currently, the fastest growing online degree program in higher education is a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. This demand is due to employees who are looking to move up in their career but who are not able to attend school full-time. Many accredited not-for-profit business schools as well as for-profit universities have launched their own online business degree programs to meet this demand. This report aims to review best practices for online business degree programs. It will describe the evolution of distance education as it pertains to higher education, the difference between campus, online and hybrid mode and the types of online learning. This report also identifies how higher education and business schools are providing online education and are competing with for-profit universities and explains why Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accreditation is important. I will also discuss the benefits of delivering online business degree programs as well as proves the challenges that administration, students and faculty face in this process. Through analysis of existing research studies, the report will explain which best practices administration, faculty and students can adopt in order to offer and participate in a successful online business degree program.
