In the last post I talked about my desire to pursue my MBA – having graduated many years ago with an undergraduate business degree. I had wanted to go straight to grad school but I soon found myself raising children on my own and working a full time job; school was simply not anything that I could imagine fitting into my schedule. That’s when I discovered online degree programs – the modern and certainly effective alternative to traditional school.
I learned that I could find an online MBA program through a reputable, accredited school and the program would allow me to pursue my degree without the obstacles that had stopped me from going back to school previously. I could attend seminars, study, and even take tests online. Going to school at home would save me from having to leave my kids and spend money on childcare – not to mention the enormous costs of commuting back and forth to school. Plus, an online MBA program would allow me to fit school into my work schedule instead of the other way around.
Part of the convenience of going to school online is being able to find the appropriate online degree programs through online research – which makes everything easy to collect and compare. I was able to spend an afternoon researching the online university degree programs that were in keeping with my goals and budget and before long I had already submitted the information I needed to gain acceptance and begin my classes.
Attending a university online has simplified what I thought was going to be an unbelievably complex process and a long, complicated road to achievement. Now I could relax into a schedule that would fit with my educational goals as well as honor the needs of my family and my demanding work routine.
