Going to college was not a given in my family. With so many brothers and sisters I knew that my parents didn’t have the money to send us all and those of us who did go would have to go with the support of many loans. My parents always encouraged us to go to college, however, and they did whatever they could to help us achieve that goal. I was one of the lucky ones and I was able to get my undergraduate degree but I was not able to continue on at that time to get my MBA -something that I very much wanted to do. Unfortunately there was just not enough funding for me to continue my journey and the time had come to go to work.
I never gave up the dream of getting my MBA, however, and luckily the world has really changed regarding education. In fact, since I graduated with my undergraduate degree a whole new world has opened up with endless possibilities – thanks to online degree programs.
Now that I’m finally set on going back for my MBA I am open to whatever I have to do to make it work. I did not, however, realize that getting my degree would be so much more convenient than I had anticipated, thanks to the potential of getting my online MBA.
Through an online MBA program I am able to work on my education without having to juggle all of the many components that I anticipated. Most college classes are not set up to accommodate the non-traditional student who is working full time during the day and needs the flexibility of night and weekend classes. By attending an online university degree program, however, you have all the flexibility that you want. I can do what I need to do when it’s convenient for me. Like I said, it’s a whole new world.
